Trash Notice: City calls for vendors to sort rubbish

Trash Notice
City Hall has issued a notice calling on market vendors to begin separating dry rubbish from wet refuse in an attempt to better manage the waste that is transported to the dump site near the Choeung Ek killing fields. “At a time when the population of Phnom Penh is increasing and the rubbish is also increasing, we need to have proper management of the rubbish,” Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema wrote in the notice, dated March 25. Phnom Penh Deputy Governor Mann Chhoeun said officials would not fine vendors who did not comply with the notice. “Our main target is to keep the city clean. It’s a public-awareness campaign,” he said.
