On the outskirts of the city of Phnom Penh. Cambodia is Stung Meanchey, otherwise known as 'The dump'.
It's the place where all the cities rubbish is dumped. During the day hundreds of people who have made their homes on the edge of the area wait for the endless delivery of truck fulls of garbage. The men women and children sift through piles of rubbish hunting out any little item that could be of some value. A lot of waste is toxic which the children sometimes ingest. I recently heard that this place has been closed down. What would all those that depend on this place for their survival now do ? I don't know ! Hopefully a better life.
