The long and dramatic story of the Naameh landfill has come to an end, officials announced Wednesday. However, the trash crisis continues, as the two landfills being counted on to replace the dump south of Beirut are not yet operational. A Cabinet decree was issued in March to resolve Lebanon's trash crisis, but did not specify what would happen to the garbage produced in the Aley and Chouf districts. In March, the government reached a solution that called for the reopening of the Naameh landfill for two months to take in the decomposing waste that had piled up since its closure.Chehayeb commended the people of Naameh and nearby areas for helping resolve the trash crisis.Sukleen and its sister company Sukomi released a statement confirming that they had completed their duties. Their work at the Naameh landfill will be limited following its closure.
