Sihanoukville facing a trash crisis- Cintri suspending services

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.

The road past Don Bosco out to Otres is absolutely disgusting

Mountains of trash piling up t Vic Hill casinos. rats,rats, rats.

They fought the dogs and killed the cats,
And bit the babies in the cradles,
And ate the cheeses out of the vats,
And licked the soup from the cook's own ladles.
Split open the kegs of salted sprats,
Made nests inside men's Sunday hats,
And even spoiled the women's chats
By drowning their speaking
With shrieking and squeaking
In fifty different sharps and flats.”

The main problem that any new refuse collection company will face in Sihanoukville is that it is somewhat difficult to determine what is garbage and what is not. Many of the residents, should they remain still for prolonged periods, which, of course, they mostly do, then they could also be collected, as trash.

Entire houses, streets even, are often indistinguishable from items that normal people around the world routinely dispose of. Again, an identification problem.

Should the rubbish collectors be on lunch break, they might legitimately start clearing the food and condiments from the tables of diners at many of the restaurants that are dotted about the city and beach, again as the fare would resemble the waste-bin of a civilised eatery.

The sea itself could be in danger, as the percentage of seawater declines precipitously against detritus. The new waste company would need quite a new and amphibious fleet to undertake the task though.

Still on the subject I am quite proud that after being criticized, my far from living areas oversized rubish shed is finally being praised for its inherent qualities :whistler:
