Caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel will discuss proposals to resolve the Naameh landfill issue with local mayors Tuesday, caretaker Environment Minister Nazem Khoury told The Daily Star.The move comes after protesters near the waste dump agreed to open the road leading to the landfill for 48 hours, a deal that expires Tuesday, in order to allow for contact to be made between relevant officials to come to a solution. Environmental activists began a protest near the Naameh landfill south of Beirut last week.Protesters accuse Sukleen of dumping nonbiodegradable wastes at Naameh, violating the agreement with the state that forbids such trash at the dump.The activists argue that the landfill now holds 10 million tons of waste, noting that the site was designed only to support 2 million tons.
