One campaign is advocating sorting waste at the source.The black bag can take organic materials such as food waste, tissues, magazines, newspapers and small cardboard boxes.Sorting the garbage beforehand could help them directly identify bags whose contents could be sold on to recycling yards, according to the campaign. This would lead to fewer bags of trash flowing from dumpsters, and could increase the proportion of waste that gets recycled. "Everyone thinks that there are no recycling factories in Lebanon, but there are".They haven't identified a solution for the waste in the black bags, but Najjar had a suggestion.
