However, an EU-funded Solid Waste Treatment Plant in the town, launched in February, raised the hope of reducing the waste reaching the site every day. The new facility was meant to sort and recycle up to 70 percent of the area's waste and reduce what needs to be buried, the EU asserts.Kfour is the smallest of the 30 villages in the Union of Municipalities of Shkif-Nabatieh.However, Kfour Mayor Tony Samaan claims the operating companies, which get paid per ton of waste processed, are not sorting the materials efficiently.Samaan maintains the dump site should be closed, and denies seeing a reduction in the amount of waste sent to the site since the town's new EU-funded plant begun functioning in February.The temporary dump site, which is located near a school, has been periodically closed by the municipality to prevent more waste being dumped.The decision to close the dump was prompted by two reports drafted by independent consultants hired by the Municipality of Kfour to assess both the dump site and the sorting plant.
