[en] Phnom Penh is facing a huge problem with increasing waste and lacking waste management due to the rapidly increasing population, economic growth and expanding urbanization. Looking back at education, the shortage of school still is a problem for children from poor families or poor communities. At the same time, their community has so many wastes that are neglected and not properly stored.
The purpose of the study is a discussion the feasibility of primary school in Phnom Penh by using recycled materials locally. The recycled materials building encourages the population to value waste, reuse or recycle, and arrange them. This work will descript the potential materials in Phnom Penh, consumption, the materials property, and method of installations. Moreover, the proposition a primary school’s project at a slum community in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
As the result, the filled plastic bottle by plastic debris is the main material due to its property, and its consumption. The primary school’s project spends around 860 000 bottles.
