One of the city’s many garbage collectors pulls her cart and child. The collectors pick up trash from house to house. They use a horn that sounds like a squeeze toy to let people know they are in the neighborhood. Part of Phnom Penh’s soundtrack is the constant squeak like one rubber duck after another was moving down the street.
