Koh Thai chain ‘left three tractor buckets worth of food waste on beach during Air Festival’

Bournemouth Echo: LEAN-UP: Koh Thai Tapas LEAN-UP: Koh Thai Tapas

A BOURNEMOUTH restaurant chain left three tractor buckets worth of food waste on the beach during last year’s Air Festival, according to the Environment Agency.

A spokesman said the waste from the Koh Lounge marquee had been reported to them as “partially buried” by Bournemouth council.

However the council said only one cubic metre of rubbish and grey water – the run-off from dishwashers – was left on the beach by Koh (UK) Ltd.

It took refuse staff an hour to clear away the mess after it was discovered on August 31, at a cost of £1,500.

Air Festival Director Jon Weaver said: “I can confirm the council had to deal with some Koh Thai food waste and grey water that was left on the beach during last year’s Air Festival.

“The matter was dealt with satisfactorily and the contractor paid for clean-up costs, no legal action was required.”

Popular restaurant Koh Thai Tapas, which has outlets in Bournemouth, Boscombe, Poole, Southsea, Bristol and Bath, ran the Koh Lounge at the festival in 2012 and 2013, with food and cocktails, views over the bay and live TV feeds of the aircraft and other entertainment over the weekend.

The business is currently bidding to return to the festival this year, and has already received booking requests.

Koh Thai managing director Andrew Lennox said the waste had spilled from its container and not been noticed until the next day as it was dark.

“It was just one of those things,” he said.

“The council have asked for more robust systems to be put in place, and they will be this year through an upgraded commercial wash-up station.

“It is a massive operation to organise, but it is amazing for us to be able to bring what we do to the beach, and we want to make sure things are better than last year.”

Koh Thai is opening a new restaurant in Oxford in the autumn.

I don't believe his drivvel that it was "overlooked". How does he explain the fact that it was partially buried then?

Sounds to me like they thought they could dump and run ....... we get plenty of fly tipping on the road sides of the area, we don't need or want it on our beaches as well >:o(

So from the headline it sounds like waste was deliberately dumped / buried on bournemouth beach....but Bournemouth Council and Koh Thai are saying differently.

Very interesting !

The machinery used to empty the container (that the waste apparently fell out of) would spread sand onto any left behind in the process which would make it partially buried.

As for the three tractor loads of rubbish/one cubic metre debate it doesn't state the tractor size. Three small tractor loads would probably be one cubic metre especially after the sand is mingled in with it.

So, as I read it, a small problem occurred. It was resolved to everyone’s satisfaction, at no taxpayer cost. Changes have been made to help prevent any repeat. What more does the Echo want? It was only one cubic metre – which given the scale of their beach operation is tiny. Unpleasant, but probably biodegradable and non-toxic. I wonder how many tons of harmful litter was deliberately dumped by the tourists? What a daft story – Koh Thai’s reputation remains intact as far as I’m concerned!

The difference is the intention. Drop a fag butt deliberately and you'll be fined, accidentally drop one without realising and you probably won't. According to the story they accidentally left their rubbish behind rather than dumping it and when they were told they paid to rectify the situation. The council and the EA are satisfied it was a mistake and they probably know a bit more about the situation than you - an internet commenter!

Do you get your silly kicks by insulting people,when you really do not know what you are talking about,dumping litter is a fineable offenceYou would be the first to complain if someone dumped in your garden,but here you try to be smart,and make a fool of yourself.Theres no fool,like a complete fool.
Crikey - a clown was too tame. You are a complete buffoon. The council entered into a contract to have Koh Thai set up on the beach. They left some waste that was dealt with by agreement with all parties. This is NOT fly tipping.

The article said it was cleared and they were charged for clearance. The council reported it to the EA and Koh Thai have said IF they get another license they'll do things differently which I'm sure will have been incorporated into their application. What else do you feel needs to be done to sort it?
drop a fag end in the road,and you get fined.Dump a big load of rubbish on a beach and try and get away with it,"no fine" ?.
The difference is the intention. Drop a fag butt deliberately and you'll be fined, accidentally drop one without realising and you probably won't. According to the story they accidentally left their rubbish behind rather than dumping it and when they were told they paid to rectify the situation. The council and the EA are satisfied it was a mistake and they probably know a bit more about the situation than you - an internet commenter!
Accidentally,RUBBISH



,they knew what they were doing and thought they could get away with it,you have to be gormless to believe their **** and bull story.
How ironic that you are insulting in this post and the one above and yet you lead the above post by commenting about another poster getting their silly kicks from insulting people. It's clear from your explosive reaction to being challenged that you rely on insults to make your point.

Pete you're a retired councillor, you aren't privy to the same amount of information anymore and making sweeping statements from your armchair doesn't make you an expert. It's gormless to believe that based on a bias Bournemouth Echo article (which has been written to sell papers) you can gain a better measure of a situation than the agencies with the full facts.
In the first place i have not been a local councillor,so please engage brain before making a false comment.Secondly if the Echo issues biased articles why do you bother to come on its website.Why dont you contact the Echo with your allegations of bias.You really are a waste of time.
I was under the impression you had been a local councillor, my mistake.

Why would I comment on biased articles? Because I think a local paper should be a community resource about the community not a political vehicle and as comments are allowed il openly challenge the bias where I see it. It's about trying to prevent the rot setting in!

Nice to see you're staying true to form and relying on personal insults instead of facts or logic to debate a point.

This bit you clown:

Definitely lies. Why would the environmental agency be involved if nothing untoward went on?

Sounds like Koh Thai paid a big premium to go back to the Air Festival these year so everyone wins except bournemouth beach.
