Environment Minister Mohammad Machnouk announced Saturday evening that the collection of garbage will resume in Beirut and Mount Lebanon in a matter of hours after the ministry located new dumps, declaring an end to a six-day crisis that saw the capital and its suburbs buried under piles of waste.Machnouk released a separate statement earlier in the day asking the public to sort their garbage at home and in commercial shops.Machnouk earlier this week said any new dumps that are identified will be used temporarily until new companies are found to properly treat the waste.
