The need to change peoples behavior and getting them to realise caring for their environment is going to be a long slow process. The supporting infrastructure for clean up and collecting garbage in Phnom Penh is generally very poor and people have come to accept that dumping trash on the streets is acceptable (as they have no other options). Government, (local and National), leadership and investment is certainly needed.
