Averda's subsidiaries Sukleen and Sukomi opened their doors to the press Thursday morning, giving tours of their facilities and a rundown of their operations.The facility is responsible for compacting and repacking the recycled materials.Also known as the Green Site, the facility is responsible for treating and composting organic matter. Since its establishment in Lebanon, Sukleen has reached out to over 2,000 partners within the private and public sectors, providing a free-of-charge collection service for recycling. Commenting on the conflicting accounts of the cost-benefit analysis of the waste treatment process, Sukleen said that the estimation of $50-$60 per ton, presented as the ideal price, pertained to one type of contract that involves waste collection, treatment, sweeping and landfilling. In Lebanon, Sukleen says it is responsible for three separate contracts that involve the aforementioned services, with a flat rate of $99 per ton of waste, and $19 per ton of waste collected by sweepers.
