Lebanon is expected to finalize its trash export contracts with two waste-to-energy companies by Thursday, the Council for Development and Reconstruction said Monday, while municipalities still wait to receive urgently needed revenue back pay.The CDR is drawing up separate contracts, still with Howa and Chinook, to process this especially infectious waste.Municipalities are meanwhile waiting for a $795 million disbursement from the central government to invest in local waste services infrastructure.Jisr confirmed the price Monday, adding that processing the older waste would add to the costs.The two companies still have two and a half weeks to specify which countries have agreed to receive the waste, according to the CDR, which commissions public-works projects for the country.Howa has not yet deposited a $2.5 million collateral payment with CDR to demonstrate its commitment.
