On May 1, a Lebanese company called Ramco took over Sukleen’s operations and started collecting waste and cleaning the roads in Beirut. Ramco that has a five-year contract with the Municipality of Beirut will collect 650 tons of garbage per day. Ramco is building underground waste containers across the city. This waste management technique meets international standards. Today, the Mayor of Beirut Jamal Itani
the bins in Sheikh Sobhi Al Saleh Square. He demonstrated how people should throw their trash and said that an awareness campaign would be launched soon. Underground bins save space, isolate the waste odor, and ensure a clean and hygienic environment. They are used in many developed countries. Ramco is scheduled to install bins of three different types in 250 collection points in a move to encourage people to sort their waste. Recycling trash can significantly help us in ending the garbage crisis in Lebanon.
