Our project team evaluated the current waste disposal system in the villages of Sang Khom, province of Udon Thani, Thailand, by obtaining a physical description of the system and assessing its potential health and environmental problems. We assessed the feasibility of alternative systems by considering the technical feasibility and social and environmental implications. We considered Sang Khon's available budget to create recommendations for improving their wasted disposal system. We also recommended education programs to increase community awareness concerning waste disposal.
