Residents of Barja protested Sunday against a new project that would see a garbage landfill and dump created in a Chouf valley, in a demonstration organized by the local municipality.Residents gathered in the town's Jamal Abdul Nasser Square to voice their opposition to the garbage disposal plan in the valley that separates the Chouf towns of Barja and Sibline. Barja has been waiting for the government to put in place a plan that would help give the town economic impetus, Hamieh said, but a project that will pose health and environmental problems was not what they were expecting.The mayor is referring to the dump in the Chouf district town of Naameh, which was created in 1997 .
