Garbage separation businesses in the On Nut area, where the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s waste disposal plant is located, remain undaunted by approaching floods.

“Every bit of what you see here represents money, so I can assure you 100% that the owners of these waste separation sites will not let floodwaters wash away their revenue,” said Samarn Saeng-ngune, the owner of a waste separation site at On Nut Soi 84.

“All the waste will be kept within their walls.”
