CHON BURI -- Residents of Koh Larn have complained that the problem of disposing of mounting piles of garbage on the popular tourist island off Pattaya is becoming worse, with about 10,000 tonnes of accumulated waste and rubbish already disfiguring the island.

The tiny resort island has a resident population of about 4,000, according to official domicile registration records.

However, there are another 4,000-8,000 people from elsewhere, including migrant workers, also living on the island.
