Poop Lorries - where does it go?

Post by Big Boy » Fri Mar 03, 2017 12:04 pm

I was sitting at traffic lights earlier today when a beautifully decorated poop truck pulled alongside. After admiring the artwork, I started thinking..................................... These guys are darting around Hua Hin all of the time, but where do they dump their load?

I'm only aware of the one treatment plant in Hua Hin along Naebkehardt Road (I guess there must be others), but I've never seen one pull in there,

I'm sure one of you guys will know the answer.

BB - One of the guys who emptied our tanks said he sells (!!) the waste to a farmer who spreads it onto the land where his coconut trees grow.

So we pay him to take it away and a farmer pays him to spread it on his land.

Whats that Yorkshire expression - "Where there's muck there's brass" ??

We were pulled up on the side of a canal in a quiet soi in Petchburi for a lunch break couple years ago and I strolled over to watch a blue tanker with hose out down the embankment. The driver looked pretty uncomfortable with us around and said he was taking on water . But it was pretty obvious by the huge number of polly waffles in the water that he was doing one big dump( pls excuse the pun)

as there is between the seed and the tree.

Well I've learned something today. We lived on Naebkehardt road for 4 years
and never knew there was a waste treatment plant there.
I've lost my mind and I am making no effort to find it.

I think (not sure - been trying to find it on Google Earth) that it's between Soi 51 and 53.

Ah, that may explain why we did not smell it.. We were opposite soi 47 area on beach side.
Thank God for those sea breezes.😜

I think they probably just pull up on some beach and dump it all right into the ocean.
Imagine if one of those tanker trucks got into an severe accident while speeding(you know how Thai's like to drive super fast) to dump its load in some canal or on some beach, it would probably make a HUGE FART sound that would be heard miles away from all the gas build up in the tank if the tank ruptured.

all the poop is taken to Bangkok where it is incorporated into the general atmosphere of the city and it is what gives bangkok it's distinctive effulgence.

Like Huahinjim, the truck that emptied mine a few months ago said it goes to the farms, who pay for it!
