Kampot Litter Disgrace After Exhibition

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Yes. Great place isn’t it.
If you want clean go to Singapore or go home. (Newcastle is very clean and the people are friendly. I sound like explorer..)

Don’t know why people are so angry or shocked when they see shit loads of rubbish piled up or floating down rivers.
If you really care about the issue work in a school to educate children. The adults are a lost cause.

Attitudes are changing. Slowly.
There are more than 100 different “Newcastles” or New Castles” around the globe, in many different countries and in many different languages.

He’s got the Union Flag on his profile, and he uses the word “rubbish”. So let’s wildly say he’s British.

How do you know which Newcastle I was referring too?

Why would the locals complain ?

They're the ones who cause the litter problem in Cambodia, and its just normal to them

Cambodia is the worst litter covered country I've been to. I remember last year travelling back into Phnom Penh by bus, and the outskirts were just like driving through a rubbish dump
In Koh Kong town some local women volunteers pick up trash along the river front. It isn't as bad now that they have moved most of the food vendors to a different area.

Same people complain EVERY time there’s a market or concert but they never go and help pick it up.
They must have very empty angry lives.

I don’t ever see locals complaining.
Cleaning up after a concert is the responsibility of the concert organisers, no? Hence the complaints. Cleaning up after Cambodians sounds like a Sisyphean task.
Scarier than malaria.

I agree but why complain (every. Single. Time.) when we know it’ll get cleaned up. Does every time.

Maybe I’ll post pictures of the concert/market getting set up and complain “Look. So much rubbish soon. What a disgrace. Probably.”
Or maybe follow the vans and trucks leaving their houses and make a complaint on FB about what’s going to be happening soon. Quite possibly. Outrage!

Exactly. If you’re slightly concerned get the F involved.

Otherwise STFU.
