Sorted waste will not be allowed to enter the Burj Hammoud landfill as of Wednesday, until construction at the site resumes, the Tashnag Party said in a statement Tuesday night.The statement comes in response to calls for the Tashnag Party's participation in the protests. Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb and MP Sami Gemayel have been locked in a war of words over the last few weeks regarding the landfill and its potential effect on the health of Metn residents. The agriculture minister, who was tasked with dealing with the trash crisis, fired back at Gemayel and the protesters Tuesday. For almost two weeks, the Kataeb has been holding regular protests outside the landfill's entrance.
