Cintri Garbage Company to be Nationalized Says PM

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.

Cintri may be temporarily allowed to collect and transport waste but my guess is that they have decided not to.

Going to be a great next couple of weeks.

“As of January 1, until new rubbish management and solid waste systems are established and put into operation completely, Cintri (Cambodia) Ltd is temporarily allowed to collect and transport rubbish and solid waste. But the company is no longer entitled to collect service fees,” the directive said.
'you're welcome to come to work, buy not to collect pay'?
what is the point of this?

the existing system works quite well all things considered

is trash going to just pile up after new year?
A bit early for you to be drunk isn't it. The rubbish collection system has never worked no matter which way or where you look at it. I'm not just talking about PP, but go a few km outside PP and open your eyes.

Yes. I think Cintri workers got the memo on this yesterday as they didn't turn up last night.

I don't have any inside info, so I might be wrong, but for me the telling point was the statement that people should no longer pay Cintri compny directly, but should pay PP City authorities. So seems that City Hall (government) have already taken over from Cintri and this is a transition period. If the PP authorities are getting the money, then they should be paying the garbage workers.
There may be a bit of chaos before the new system kicks in, but hopefully things wil improve.

Does that mean payment will be state of the art but workers will still scratch the rubbish from the concrete with a shovel leaving behind bacteria and health hazards on the street.
Yes...

it works fine for me and pretty much always has
they could come more frequently, but they do come regularly
the billing system in particular is easy
not too bad for a developing country

there's definitely a problem with 'piles of trash', but that's because residents pile it up naked instead of putting it in bins or dumpsters

outside the city, there is often no CINTRI coverage, so no, it doesn't work there

Meanwhile my latest water bill has just arrived on a full A4 page as opposed to the previous slip. Although it is improved in that it has descriptions in English for each item now.

Did you notice it is only a estimate reading ,,, up to 31/12/19 ,,, pay by today 19/12/19.

But I never complain as my water bill in OZ is usually over $100 every month because of all the add on's , like sewerage and sewer line maintenance, plus this plus that.

Yes I noticed it was "estimated" - this one's ~$1 and they're usually close to $2. And oh yes, due today! lol Nice one!
