Garbage Problem

Cambodia has been in a rapid growth in recent years. However, it is not proportional to economic growth and the spread of infrastructure is delayed, so the problem of garbage disposal has become a problem in various parts of Cambodia.

Dump Site

Siem Reap, a town where one of the world heritages, Angkor Wat is located at, has a major problem regarding to trash disposals and management. Garbage is being transported and dumped somewhere far away from the tourist spots.

The Village

Kumae’s projects is in the village, called Onloung Pi which is about 25 kilometers far away from Siem Reap town. A village which once was full of nature, trees and rice fields has now become as famous as the name, “Garbage Mountain”.
