New Municipal dumpsite outside of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. ..RUBBISH DUMP RECYCLING. The statistics show that up to 90% of Aluminum cans, plastic bottles, cardboard and plastic bags are recycled in Cambodia..The old Smokey Mountain, was closed down because it has become a prime development site. It was infamous for the number of child workers, its smokey atmosphere and the inhumane working conditions. The new dumpsite is no different, but its a klandfill site, and in the countryside, just hidden from view and no press have been allowed entry. Its 30 km outside of town, off the tourist route and difficult fo the rubbish recyclers to get there, except if they pay for transport to get there and back, reducing the meagre amount of the earnings. Having no other work available this is what they do.
