Council for Development and Reconstruction head Nabil Jisr said Monday that the infamous Naameh dump would cease operations on time and close permanently this Thursday, although the two other alternative landfills are not ready yet.In March, the government finalized a solution for the garbage crisis, which dominated public life for nearly eight months after the Naameh landfill was closed last July. After Naameh's closure, garbage will be transported to parking lots that have been constructed next to each prospective landfill. As soon as construction is complete, the waste will be dumped.Six companies have placed bids for the construction of the Costa Brava landfill.
