Since the start of September, the Metn town of Beit Mery has been working to implement an innovative zero-waste management program, the first of its kind in Lebanon.Nevertheless, Abi Chaker admitted that the program in Beit Mery was only one part of a broad package of programs to solve Lebanon's waste issues.While Abi Chaker didn't speak explicitly about the group's next project, he noted it would be bigger than the one implemented in Beit Mery – possibly processing up to 25 tons of waste per day, and capable of serving up to 50,000 people.Referring to an initiative supported by caretaker Education Minister Elias Bou Saab that installed an incinerator in the Metn town of Dhour Choueir, Habib explained that the project faced heavy opposition.According to Habib, Dhour Choueir's incinerators are a difficult proposition for a country like Lebanon.Ayoub himself was generally pessimistic about the prospect of improving Lebanon's waste crisis – despite the successes of Cedar Environmental's project in Beit Mery.
