Recycled community

A child from a community of 346 families living in Stung Meanchey district adjacent to the old city dumpsite stands in a recycling collection cart on Tuesday. The families who formerly made a living by collecting recyclable materials from the dump were recently given a land concession of 1 hectare per family in Kampot province. Family members who began moving to the plots in recent weeks say they were informed by government officials that if the forested land is not cleared within six months it will be taken back.
