Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt Wednesday ignited a debate over a Mount Lebanon town's practice of dumping of garbage on the banks of a river.A member of environmental media platform Green Area, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Daily Star that a number of villages and towns in the area, including Naameh, were following Damour municipality's pursuit and dumping trash in random sites.In July 2015, the Naameh landfill near Beirut was closed without a viable alternative in place.The four-month period was given to allow time for those concerned in the case to find an alternative site to replace the landfill south of Beirut and prevent trash from accumulating again in the streets of the city.Liban, an environmental organization Abi Rached founded, has been distributing an infographic proposing an environmentally-friendly waste management alternative to the coastal Burj Hammoud and Costa Brava landfills.
