Plastic in Economy

Similar to global context, waste management issue is quite challenging in many municipalities and districts of Cambodia as well as in Phnom Penh Capital. However, we are facing lots of difficulties to manage it in a proper manner. Just in Phnom Penh, the amount of collected waste amount is about 3,000 ton/day in 2019. This is a very concerned data for open dumping of those mixed waste to a landfill which would create many environmental impacts and lost many waste-to-resource recovery options to promote circular economy in Cambodia.
