July 29, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Head of Kataeb party, Sami Gemayel, met on Wednesday at the party’s post in Saifi with Agriculture Minister, Akram Shouhayib, who asserted that the garbage crisis is the most important dossier to be tackled at the present time.

Shouhayib stated that the garbage crisis has dire repercussions on the environment and demanded a national solution due to its effect on the politics, economics and finances of Lebanon.

“The solution is not limited to the Prime Minister and Environment Minister,” he said as he stressed the need to set aside all political and sectarian scores aside.

The Minister revealed that several alternative locations were suggested by the Environment Ministry to elevate the pressure off of Nahme landfill, which could not handle any more trash.
