Rubbish and Solid Waste Management Policy
The Ministry of Environment is developing a new policy to manage rubbish and solid waste in urban areas to address and resolve waste management issues. The new policy includes collection zones and the creation of more dumpsite, contributing to making Cambodia a beautiful country that has a good, hygienic and attractive environment.
According to the ministry, about 10,000 tonnes of rubbish is produced in Cambodia daily. However, only about 50 per cent of rubbish is disposed at dumpsites while the remaining ends up on the streets, in waterways or is burned.
