Garbage Removal Operation Underway
11 July 2018
Phnom Penh: The Department of Public Works and Transport of Phnom Penh has begun the removal of the garbage in Boeung Trobek canal. On July 11, 154 trucks worth of plastic and other trash had been removed, which equivalent to about 50% of the garbage in the water.

According to Mr. Sang Piseth, the director of Department of Public Works and Transport of Phnom Penh, people will keep throwing the trash into Boeung Trobek canal until it is totally blocked, causing flooding in the rainy season, so he ordered his team to clear the garbage out of the water and take it away.
