Smell becomes unbearable as trash piles up at Kampong Chhnang market

Kampong Chhnang Province: Tensions are rising as the uncollected market garbage is being trampled on by residents and vendors in Market 5, Or Russey district, Kompong Tralach district, Kompong Chhnang province, creating a possible health hazard for all users of the market.
In addition, the market is held on the side of National Rd 5 where many vehicles stop for food and refreshment, and the smell has become so unbearable that it drives away the customers.

In a case similar to the recent problems of garbage removal in Banlung, there is conflict over who is responsible for the mounds of stinking market rubbish. The authorities blame the owner, and the owner of the market is blaming the garbage company. Meanwhile, the stinking piles of trash mount up daily.

The inhabitants of Prey Krab village, Prey Rour commune, Rolea Pha district, Kampong Chhnang say that the flies are driving them mad, the smell is unbearable, and the village children are becoming sick. They say they cannot live like this and they are pleading with the authorities to intervene with the garbage company on their behalf.

I thought the Vietnamese on those boats in the river were the polluters. Surely order has been restored now that they have gone.

I've just returned from cleaning the roadside in front of our home. Some people can't wait to dump their trash at the market.

Anyway I am curious to know what you hold those "few exceptions" to be.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.
