Sihanoukville facing a trash crisis- Cintri suspending services

Sihanoukville facing a trash crisis
Wed, 6 September 2017
- Sihanoukville officials are scrambling to figure out how they will collect rubbish throughout the city – one of the top tourism destinations in the country – if waste management firm Cintri makes good on a recent threat to halt services on September 14, raising concerns that unmanaged mounds of trash could damage the local economy.

Cintri, which has provided waste-collection services in Sihanoukville since 2005, informed officials in a letter dated July 31 that it would suspend its services beginning August 15. It cited numerous problems, such as bad road conditions, profit losses and the lack of a current official contract. It later agreed to extend its services until September 14, said company manager Ith Chenda.

Chenda said Cintri faces a slew of problems in Sihanoukville. For example, he said, the dump site is at the end of about 30 kilometres of slippery, steep roads, which have caused some of their trucks to overturn.

Chenda also claimed that about 60 percent of the 10,000 customers in Sihanoukville have not paid their fees since 2005, though he was unable to provide an estimate of how much this had cost the company, or explain why the issue hadn’t been addressed before...

"Facing a trash crisis?". Does that mean Twapper will be back to give a bad place an even worse name?

"A trash pile up in SNV will hardly be noticed tastes barang no need to worry"

That sentence is a fragment of your imagination. Is there a complete English equivalent?

A trash pile in SNV is no bigger difference to cow in India or a hooker in Pattaya , it's part of the furniture.

"it's part of the furniture."

I've no doubt you were able to establish yourself comfortably in all three. Twapper, it's one thing to be stuck in a groove and quite another to move in and furnish it.

When a city is already covered in trash, you wonder if a bit more will make much of a difference ?

I'm surprised a Chinese company hasn't stepped in to solve the problem.
You could be next.
