First there was a beach on Koh Phi Phi, then a dirty canal in Bang Tao, Phuket. Now, the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) has cleared rubbish from an island beach off Pattaya in Chon Buri.

Photos were posted in the ‘Pattaya Watchdog’ Facebook page on May 14 with a message reading: “Some business operators have dumped this rubbish on the beach.”

The DMCR on Thursday reported that they had inspected Tawaen beach and Thonglang beach on Koh Lan off the coast of Pattaya in Chon Buri after photos of rubbish went viral in social media complaining that rubbish had been dumped on the beaches.

All the rubbish has now been removed from the beaches.
