Abstract

Excessive amounts of waste exist in the Khlong Toei slum causing health and environmental problems for the local residents. Our goal was to propose a sustainable waste management strategy for the Khlong Toei slum. Through interviews and physical inspections we found that problems with waste management stemmed from the municipality’s inconsistency in collecting and the residents’ habits of open dumping of waste. Recommendations included implementing a communal dumping system and educating local children about proper waste disposal methods.
