A constant stream of trucks waited to deliver compacted trash Tuesday to a prepared space in the Choueifat's coastal Costa Brava area, a day after the site opened amid staunch local opposition.The baled trash is being unloaded in the area, awaiting the establishment of the Costa Brava landfill where they would be dumped. The trash heading to the area is new waste, the months-old garbage is being taken to the Naameh landfill south of Beirut.Cabinet last month agreed on a trash management plan to help the country solve the crisis it faced after the Naameh landfill was shut down last summer without an alternative dump site.The new plan will see two temporary landfills established in Burj Hammoud-Boushrieh on Beirut's outskirts and in the Costa Brava area, south of the capital. The Naameh landfill has been reopened for two months to take in the old waste that accumulated over the last eight months.
