Nearly 50 families living near a rubbish dump in Siem Reap province’s Prasat Bakong district on Tuesday demanded authorities quickly find an alternative site.
They said the current dump in Trapaing Thom commune’s Anlong Pi village is unhygienic, causing people to fall sick and producing a strong smell.
Loeng Mon, who has lived in Anlong Pi village for over 12 years, told The Post on Tuesday that the company responsible for collecting rubbish in Siem Reap city, GAEA Waste Management, has turned the area into a rubbish mountain. He said authorities had been inactive in addressing the issue.
