Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb urged the Kataeb Party to be flexible in dealing with the re-emerging trash crisis in Metn areas and to stop wasting time by blocking work at the Burj Hammoud landfill site.The statement added that the best solution to the renewed trash crisis was to establish recycling plants in every district, thus decentralizing the sector – something Kataeb has long demanded.Leaders of Metn district municipalities, such as Fanar, Jdeideh-Boushrieh and Ain Saade agreed over the weekend on an area to temporarily store the area's trash, until a recycling plant is established in Nahr al-Mot, just north of the capital.
