Kataeb leader Sami Gemayel Monday inaugurated a recycling plant in Mount Lebanon, announcing that his party as of next month will no longer be involved in any government contracts related to the trash crisis.Gemayel said the villages that will initially benefit from the recycling plant will only pay 15 percent of what they used to pay to Sukleen.Gemayel has repeatedly accused Sukleen of neglecting its duties by burying the trash in landfills rather than sorting it.Gemayel said the new plant will initially treat the waste of four villages in the area, but would soon begin accommodating trash for 11 villages, adding that it will also get rid of solid waste once new and more modern machinery is installed in the near future.
