The mayors and members of municipalities in several towns and villages in the south and Mount Lebanon visited Bickfaya’s Bi-Clean waste sorting plant, in a tour organized in collaboration with ACTED organization.
ACTED is an international non-governmental organization committed to immediate humanitarian relief to support those in urgent need.
The visiting group was given an in-depth insight into the work mechanism at the sorting plant.
Bi-Clean is an initiative launched by Bickfaya's municipality, and is aimed at handling waste management according to the system of integrated waste management.
The Bi-Clean waste management center is now treating eight tons of daily waste sorted from source.
“The determination and perseverance to complete what we’ve started are the two main catalysts for our success, despite all the hardships facing us,” Bickfaya Mayor Nicole Gemayel said, noting that the center was established because Bickfaya refused to yield to the garbage crisis that plagued the country.
“We must refuse the status quo through our willpower and our efforts to address the problems facing us,” Gemayel concluded.
