In an issued statement on Saturday, the “Terre Liban” Association called on heads and members of municipal councils in Beirut and Mount Lebanon regions to “take the historic responsibility of avoiding a new waste crisis in the streets a month from now, by participating in its proposed solution to manage 3000 tons per day of household solid waste.”
“The proposed solution does not require funding or establishing new landfills,” the statement indicated, outlining a few required steps in this regards.
The Association explained that its proposed solution “leads to saving $75 per ton of waste, prolonging the capacity endurance of the Costabrava landfill up to 6 years, and saving the fishermen’s port in Dora – Burj Hammoud area.”
“Terre Liban” expressed full readiness to support the municipalities with the necessary training and forums, while urging those interested to contact the Association in order to sign this initiative in preparation for presenting it to the concerned government bodies for clearance.
