The center aims to make the country clean and provide a solution to Lebanon’s waste management problem. The initiative began by replacing ordinary street bins with three separate ones, each labeled with the type of waste that goes there.

Madame Maya lives in a far town… She took the initiative to rassemble the waste in her neighborhood and start recycling it at her place before delivering it to us! Be like Maya A post shared by Biclean (@biclean_bickfaya) on Sep 11, 2019 at 12:48am PDT This was their first step; it was to prove the gravity of the matter and to show that garbage doesn’t all go to the same place as people had believed. It can be sorted! View this post on Instagram Besançon School-Baabdath Students are sorting their waste before delivering it to our recycling facility! Thank you for your valuable intentions towards environment protection! Be many like Besançon School-Baabdath Students!

The people decided that they were on their own, as always, and they needed to take matters into their own hands. That’s what they have been doing for the past couple of years.

Though the bins do the major part of sorting, Bi Clean does a deeper sorting. All the waste is spread and categorized to be prepared for recycling.

Glass is crushed and sent to construction plants to be used instead of beach sand. Finally, organic waste is treated and turned into a liquid fertilizer to prevent its spread on Lebanese streets.
