The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL - Khouth Sophak Chakrya

WASTE man­age­ment com­pany Cin­tri yes­ter­day called for Phnom Penh res­i­dents and busi­nesses to take par­tic­u­lar care of how they deal with trash dur­ing next week’s Pchum Ben hol­i­day, as more than 60 per­cent of the garbage col­lec­tors will be on leave for three days.

Meas Saron, as­sis­tant to the ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Cin­tri, said that the com­pany is com­ply­ing with a Min­istr y of Labour or­der to al­low work­ers to take leave from Septem­ber 19 to Septem­ber 21 for the hol­i­day.

Saron said only 590 of the more than 1,500 garbage col­lec­tors would work on those days, adding that the re­main­ing work­ers had vol­un­teered over the hol­i­day.

He ex­plained that those who work over the hol­i­day will be paid up to 50,000 riel, or around $12.36, ex­tra each day, and will be able to take a three-day hol­i­day later in the year.

He also ap­pealed to the pub­lic to do its part to main­tain the hy­giene of the cap­i­tal.

“We strongly be­lieve that the peo­ple, busi­ness own­ers and lo­cal author­i­ties will jointly clean the city by pack­ing and keep­ing trash prop­erly and or­derly,” he said.
