Songkhla has the most undisposed rubbish in the country, including waste that has not been collected or has been disposed of improperly. 

Wichien Jungrungruang, director-general of the Pollution Control Department, said Songkhla had 2.4 million tonnes of undisposed rubbish in 2013 or an average of 1.7 kilogrammes per head. Samut Prakan had 2 million tonnes or 1.6kg a head, while Kanchanburi had 1.6 million tonnes or 1.9kg a head.
