Global Action for Environment Awareness Plc. (GAEA) was established in July 2007 with the aim to provide waste management services for municipalities throughout Cambodia and is now operating in four provinces: Siem Reap, Bantey Minchey, Kampong Thom and Kampot. GAEA provides several types of services:
- Municipal Solid Waste collection: GAEA is collecting municipal solid waste from households and businesses holding a solid waste removal contract with GAEA within the framework of the government license. GAEA is responsible for collecting waste only if it's well disposed in a garbage bin and is not responsible for collecting construction waste, garden waste, industrial waste. Nevertheless GAEA can offer special services on request.
- Extra Services: GAEA also sells bins, offers extra pick-up for non-recurrent waste disposal (for example: during the construction phase, after cutting trees and grass) using a 8m3 container, and provides extra-cleaning services for special events (concerts, fairs...). Contact the company more information.
- Environmental awareness: GAEA is cooperating with the government and with NGOs to raise environmental awareness to the community through education programs, cleaning activities and training, targeting in priority public schools and poor villages. Awareness is raised on the fact that littering and burning garbage is impacting the environment and human health. Alternative solutions to single-use plastic are proposed, training is provided on how to sort/recycle waste sorting and how to pack waste properly into garbage bins.
