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.

I'm surprised a Chinese company hasn't stepped in to solve the problem.
I think you have hit the nail on the head with that statement. The Chinese business people will not want their countrymen coming to shitvila. :stir:

Damn. Could this affect Sihanoukville's chances of winning the Asean Clean Tourism City Competition 2017 ? :?

And now for the good news...

New firm takes over for Cintri to tackle trash in Sihanoukville
Mon, 18 September 2017
Move over, Cintri – there’s a new garbage collector in town.

For the first time in a dozen years, Sihanoukville has a new waste management company, and it has already started collecting trash ahead of the Pchum Ben holiday.

After a one-month bidding process, Sihanoukville officials on Friday awarded a 10-year contract to newcomer waste management firm KSWM (Kampong Som Waste Management) Co Ltd over the established Cintri, according to Preah Sihanouk Governor Y Sokleng.

The two companies were the only ones to submit bids, according to Sokleng. He said officials awarded the contract to KSWM because Cintri did not submit several required documents, while KSWM sent a full application including an investment plan and a waste collection schedule.

Cintri, which has been criticised for poor service in both Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh, suspended waste collection services in the coastal city last Thursday, citing bad road conditions and profit losses due to residents not paying their waste collection fees.

2 October 2017
SIHANOUKVILLE - Sihanoukville residents are still complaining that their trash is being left in the street and not getting picked up. Local authorities have asked the population to be patient and give the new company time to clear up the accumulated mess from the streets.
