1 introduction
  • Cambodia has an area of 181,035 km2

SWM is one of the major problems facing Cambodia, particularly in the capital city of Phnom Penh. The volume of SW has dramatically increased due to the rapid rate of urban development, rural-urban migration, and high population growth rate. It has been indicated that the amount of SW to be disposed at open dumping site, is estimated 850 tons/day. Most provinces do not have proper dumping site for the MW.
