Residents will be asked to separate their food and general waste for a new garbage truck making the rounds as part of a pilot project launched yesterday.
The “No Mixed Waste” pilot project was launched Sunday at a media event held outside the Lumphini Park Food Centre to encourage people to put food waste in bright green bags and general waste in black bags, which will be provided by City Hall.
Gov. Chadchart was on hand to roll out a garbage truck that features a rear-mounted compactor and a side cabin to store the food waste.
For the test phase, it has been dispatched to collect waste in three districts: Pathumwan, Phayathai, and Nong Khaem. If deemed successful, more districts will be added at a later date.
