Volunteers descended on the Chao Phraya River over the weekend as part of a clean-up project.
Which in just over an hour of cleaning removed 2,000 plastic bags, 700 bottles and 600 cups from the water along with other trash.
The operation was part of the Clean Up Bangkok River Project and attended by several city embassies as well as non-affiliated volunteers.
Those taking part donned rubber gloves and dragged nets from boats along the river banks. Volunteers focused on an area stretching 6 kilometres from Yodpiman Flower market to Rama III Bridge.
While many volunteers focused on the river some were dispatched to also clean up streets that lead to the river.
The rubbish collected was sorted into seven categories so organisers could assess which was the worst pollutant and what preventative measures could be put in place to combat it.
