Toxic Waste Disposal
Phuket City provides special bins in government schools and hotels to separate toxic waste. You should place any toxic waste in a plastic bag and take it to the nearest hotel or municipality office in your area. We will then collect it and transfer it to the Phuket City municipality. It is important that you do not destroy it yourself or dispose of it by burying it in the ground.

For more information on toxic waste management contact Phuket Provincial Public Health Office on Narisorn Rd (Tel: 076-211330, Email:
