Capital maintains waste collection tariffs, payment methods

The Phnom Penh Municipal Administration said it will maintain tariffs for rubbish and solid waste collection services and retain pre-payment methods for this year.

In an announcement dated July 9, it said pre-payment can be made for a period of six months – July-December.

All residents, businesses and private institutions can use their customer identification number to make payments through their mobile phone, agents of electronic payment service providers or partner banks’ mobile apps during the transition period.

On October 22, 2019, Prime Minister Hun Sen revoked the monopoly rights held by local firm Cintri (Cambodia) Co Ltd for rubbish collection and disposal in Phnom Penh and the municipality took over temporary management of waste collection until a new company could be found. At the time, Cintri was not up to the task, he said.

In February, One Singaporean and one Chinese firm each won bids to collect and manage waste in two zones in Phnom Penh, while Cintri was selected to provide services in the central and southern parts of the capital.
