Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb claimed Monday that the alternative waste management plan proposed by the "You Stink" campaign was politically motivated and not environmentally inclined. Chehayeb also announced that he would be meeting You Stink activists Tuesday in order to discuss environmental plans. The plan entailed establishing sanitary landfills in Srar in the northern district of Akkar and the Masnaa border area, reopening the Naameh landfill for seven days, and supporting recycling initiatives.You Stink claims the 108,000 tons of accumulated waste required up to 83 days to transport.Chehayeb said that 90,000 tons have been deposited underground in areas surrounding the airport and some villages and towns while another 10,000 tons of waste have already been incinerated.Around a hundred activists demonstrated around the Naameh landfill Sunday. Chehayeb discussed his waste plan with Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun at his Rabieh residence. Chehayeb will be meeting with You Stink Tuesday in order to further discuss waste treatment strategies.
