Beirut Mayor Jamal Itani said Wednesday that Beirut has been preparing to shift to using underground waste containers, during a meeting at the Grand Serail with Prime Minister Saad Hariri on current and future projects for the municipality.The meeting, attended by a delegation of Future Movement parliamentary candidates in Beirut, local mukhtars, and headed by former Prime Minister Tammam Salam, tackled 55 municipality projects, a statement from the premier's office reported.Itani said the municipality already started implementing a waste project Tuesday, which falls under the comprehensive waste management plan laid out for Beirut. The waste plan's implementation comes after Sukleen -- a waste management company contracted in 1994 -- officially wrapped up its operations in Beirut, announcing Lebanon had chosen a new contractor.Itani said Hariri had requested that the municipality rehabilitate Ramlet al-Baida and keep it public, as it is currently Beirut's last remaining public beach.
