Environment Minister Tarek Khatib will ask Cabinet Thursday to approve $20 million dollars to begin the closure and rehabilitation of informal dumps across Lebanon, a statement from his office said Wednesday.Khatib's plan, endorsed by Cabinet last month, called for Chouf and Aley's waste to be dumped at Costa Brava, which will be expanded in order to absorb the increased amounts.Khatib's plan does call for the decentralization of waste management at the municipal level, which has received guarded praise from environmental groups, however, they generally disagree with plans to adopt waste incineration.
