Local business Recycle Beirut is saying "enough is enough," accusing U.N. Resident Humanitarian Coordinator in Lebanon Philippe Lazzarini of diverting money into "ineffective" waste management projects and exacerbating Lebanon's trash crisis.According to a Facebook post published by the company Thursday morning, Recycle Beirut had proposed to Lazzarini to upgrade its sorting facility and construct six drop-off warehouses around Beirut to increase residents' accessibility to recycling options.Under the hashtag #whatareyoudoingphillipe, Recycle Beirut has asked the public to join the campaign by calling and emailing Lazzarini's office to urge funding for sustainable waste management practices.Recycle Beirut's campaign was met with both praise and criticism online, sparking a debate over whether or not responsibility for waste management should fall to the U.N. or the Lebanese government.
