Cambodian Officials Went to UK to Study Waste Management Systems

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Waste is not "sent abroad" from the UK, there are private companies who buy it, bale it up and then export it to sell for a profit. just saying.

Yet another Norwegian who has a problem with the UK. If I recall, your country had Nazi sympathies in WW2 and was the site for their heavy water plant for the Atomic bomb project.

What's your problem?

Lot of waste, lots of mismanagement
I dissagree I have a weekly kerbside collection one week being recyclable waste (paper cardboard glass metal and recyclable plastic) and the second week general non-recyclable household rubbish. Also a weekly collection of food waste. I have regular visits to my garden from foxes and the occasional deer and have never encountered any problems. I don't leave rotting food lying around in plastic sacks or leave the tops off my waste bins.
In addition for a fee I can have any green garden waste collected every other week or can take it myself to the local recycling site for free where it will be composted ans sold as garden compost.

All large retailers charge for plastic bags unless they are used to wrap meat and fish with the money going to charity to discouraged their use unlike Cambodia where in the market every item warrants its own bag. I have bought my girlfriend numerous shopping bags so it is unnecessary to bag vegetables and fruit just the meat and fish, however she forgets to take the bag.
You must be in a better managed area then me.In summer my food wheeleie bin stinks adter a few days. We already pay for waste collection, now we have to pay again for green waste? its all a con. In my youth our bins were empied daily, the rag and bone man came round weekly and took anything recycleable. And if you think it works check out how much wate the uk sends abroad. As of a few years ago there was only 1 plant in the country capabale of dismatling fridges

The Mekong River Commission is famous for it's "sunny side of the street" approach to the environment,
They came up with a nearly perfect solution to the problem of billions of plastic water bottles
- Dehydrated water powder packaged in a paper bag

There is loads of dehydrated water in the Mekong these days
but they can't find enough trees to make the paper bags.

This is totally irrelevant to the waste issue too - but what the hell...

Who had sympathies, and landmines, and cocktails, for the KR all through the 1980's - well after their genocide was fully known?

Throughout the 1980s, the KR held Cambodia’s seat in the United Nations, supported by the United States, Britain and other European nations, China and pro-Western Asian countries.

There was a time when you could meet Khmer Rouge officials at cocktail parties in Phnom Penh, with the drinks provided by the United Nations
"I found myself next to Khieu Samphan, Pol Pot’s right hand man, at a party at the U.N. mission’s headquarters in Phnom Penh at the end of 1991"

The UK does not "send waste abroad" it is bought by private waste management companies, they sort it and then sell it the highest bidder, wherever they may be. it's all about the money.
