CityNews – The Chiang Mai municipality has launched an online garbage collection platform.

Secretary to the Chief Executive of Chiang Mai Municipality, Assanee Buranupakorn has announced an online recycle collection platform. This is a collaboration project between the municipality, GEPP Sa-Ard Co., Ltd., Northern Thai Hotel Association and local communities. This app is aimed to work like a Grab service but to pick up recycle garbage from households. The revenue from selling recycle goods will be returned to the hotel association which is sponsoring this project. The platform is in the trial stage with two collection trucks available covering the Chiang Mai municipality area. The service is free of charge and the team is working on developing an application.
