  • Lebanon garbage crisis gets helping hand from Syrian recyclers

    Lebanon is faced with enormous environmental challenges. For one, a garbage crisis broke out last summer after the closure of the country’s main landfill site. As rubbish piled up across the capital, Kazak saw a need for change, and an opportunity. While the Lebanese job market is not open to foreigners in all sectors, Syrian refugees with residency are legally allowed to work in the environmental and cleaning sectors. However, many Syrians struggle to find work amid a limited number of job opportunities. Lebanon is host to more than a million registered Syrian refugees. Equivalent to almost a quarter of the country’s population, the small Middle Eastern nation hosts more refugees per capita than any other country.

An influx of refugees means the Bekaa Vallet's population has exploded. There are now more Syrians living in Bar Elias, Qab Elias and El Marj than Lebanese residents - 200,000 people to the local population of 130,000, according to the Economic and Social Fund for Development (ESFD).

This happened as the government is still grappling with the garbage collection problem. Waste has gone uncollected since the capital's main landfill was closed just over a month ago. The government has been unable to agree on a new site. That has led to angry protesters taking to the streets of Beirut, denouncing what they call political corruption.

Lebanon's media is crowded, diverse and highly politicised. Last year's protests over the rubbish crisis is a case in point. It's a story of how a deeply divided media fractured the consensus on a civic issue - and the activists who are pushing for alternative narratives ever since. These media institutions are an extension to the political status quo. It would be naïve to think that any movement, will not be attacked by this media. Jad Melki, associate professor of journalism and media studies, American University Beirut Where democracy is concerned, Lebanese media enjoys more liberties than many other countries in the region. However, the problem lies elsewhere - the politics. The intricate network of corporate, political and sectarian strings attached to each and every channel complicates the reporting of everything. National politics and religious groups and sects are how the media is dictated in this instance. "If you think of a puzzle and think of Lebanon as this puzzle with each piece representing a different religious sect and with each piece also having a few patrons, a few political groups that dominate it. It also is reflected in the media," says Jad Melki, associate professor of journalism and media studies at the Lebanese American University. But what could be the sectarian view on reporting the garbage crisis? "What happened was really interesting because a few media outlets that weren't really directly owned by political parties started to cover the protests, and these protests were really a confrontation with Lebanese political power," says Habib Battah, editor at online news and current affairs site The Beirut Report. "They were not really picking sides and picking favourites, but actually attacking the entire political establishment in the country. And that really wasn't convenient for most TV channels to cover because each one kinda wants to cover something that makes their politician, their owner look good and no one's looking good here." Talking us through the story are: Karma Khayat, vice chairwoman, Al Jadeed TV; Nabil Dajani, professor of communication and media studies, American University Beirut; Jad Melki, associate professor of journalism and media studies, Lebanese American University; and Habib Battah, editor, BeirutReport.com More from The Listening Post on: YouTube - http://aje.io/listeningpostYT Facebook - http://facebook.com/AJListeningPost Twitter - http://twitter.com/AJListeningPost Website - http://aljazeera.com/listeningpost

(28 May 2017) LEADIN: Lebanon's beaches have it all: sun, sea, sand...and rubbish. Now volunteers are cleaning up Lebanon's beaches to try to turn it back to "the paradise of the Middle East". STORYLINE: It's almost summer time in Lebanon - and the beaches are starting to fill up with sun seekers. But these shorelines have a big problem: waste. Rubbish can often be found littered among the sand and pebbles as people sunbathe nearby. In Beirut the water is too dirty for most people to swim in so many make the drive north to Batroun, Chekkeh or Anfe. But here too at Batroun, there's rubbish on the beach. So today around 100 volunteers are helping to clean up six beaches in and around the city. "We're 20 years old, so this is kind of all we know," says volunteer Ali Sasso as he sorts through rubbish. "But at the same time you can't be really annoyed, because we're all contributing to this, so whatever I pick up I see it and say 'wow, I buy this as well'." 'Dive into Action', part of the 'Recycle Lebanon' group, are behind this action day. The group hold two 'Sort2Recycle' beach clean-ups every month. Their regular action days can be found at different locations around the country. They collect rubbish and separate it into recyclables. At the beginning of the day, volunteers are divided into groups and sent to different locations. They're handed a bag and gloves at the team's headquarters and arrive at the beach at the same time as the sunbathers. "I've decided I'm going to do a little patch from here to here and I just want to make it perfect," says one volunteer, Sara Allan. The most collected items are plastic bottles - single use and a short life cycle - they're easy to spot. But small shards of glass and plastic are more difficult to see as they get hidden amongst the sand. "If you look on the surface it seems like it's clean, but actually all you need to do is go like that and there's glass here," says Allan. Collected rubbish is divided into recyclable and non-recyclable and then divided again into plastic bottles and gallons, plastic bags, micro plastics, glass, crisp and snack packets and cigarettes. Plastic bags are often found in the stomachs of sea creatures who mistake them for food. One cigarette butt has the capacity to contaminate at least one litre of water. Founder Joslin Kehdy began 'Recycle Lebanon' in response to Lebanon's 2015 'waste crisis'. Rubbish collectors went on strike after the government closed the Beirut and Mount Lebanon region waste dump and offered no other place to dispose of Beirut's waste. Mountains of rubbish were left on the sides of roads and in landfills throughout the summer - some right by the Mediterranean coast. Several groups are now trying to galvanise Lebanon's population into action, including NGO Recycle Lebanon, mainly made up of volunteers. "So what we're doing here today, is quite unique because it's the first time we've done six beaches and multi-location clean-ups all on the same day," says Kehdy. "We have over 80 people, I think we're about 100 people here today and we've divided them up into groups." "We use zero-single-use plastics so we use this to teach people about their consumption habits, about the price of plastic and what it's doing to our health and our environment." As little as six per cent of Lebanon's waste was recycled in 2015, according to the Ministry of the Environment. But since the 2015 crisis, more and more municipalities are now starting to recycle. Changing how people view waste is Kehdy's ultimate goal. The sorted bags will end up at the Municipality of Batroun sorting facility.

Lebanon is faced with enormous environmental challenges. For one, a garbage crisis broke out last summer after the closure of the country’s main landfill site. As rubbish piled up across the capital, Kazak saw a need for change, and an opportunity. While the Lebanese job market is not open to foreigners in all sectors, Syrian refugees with residency are legally allowed to work in the environmental and cleaning sectors. However, many Syrians struggle to find work amid a limited number of job opportunities. Lebanon is host to more than a million registered Syrian refugees. Equivalent to almost a quarter of the country’s population, the small Middle Eastern nation hosts more refugees per capita than any other country.

(28 Mar 2017) LEADIN: An influx of Syrian refugees to the Bekaa Valley has tripled the amount of rubbish produced in the area. But a new waste management facility has been built to ease the pressure on services. STORYLINE: Huge mounds of rubbish dominate this landfill site in Bar Elias. And the piles are getting bigger. An influx of refugees means the Bekaa Vallet's population has exploded. There are now more Syrians living in Bar Elias, Qab Elias and El Marj than Lebanese residents - 200,000 people to the local population of 130,000, according to the Economic and Social Fund for Development (ESFD). So the European Union has funded the construction of a new facility to help deal with the spike in waste production. It will go into operation in May this year when it will receive and sort solid waste as well as carry out composting operations. EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy, Johannes Hahn, has come for a tour of the brand new site. He says waste treatment is "one of the musts" for improving living conditions. "No matter if it's the host community or if it's the refugees, everybody is affected if there is air pollution, if there is soil pollution, so therefore we have to invest. It is a moral obligation for us to do this," he says. Lebanon is home to more than one million registered Syrian refugees. And the vast numbers have put increasing pressure on the country's infrastructure. "Originally we had to treat less than around 15 to 20 tonnes of waste a day, now we have about 60 tonnes of waste a day in Bar Elias. Sixty tonnes," says the mayor of Bar Elias Mawas Araji. "So the presence of Syrian refugees has increased our burden. This project (the waste treatment facility), in terms of waste management, has eased our burden." Lebanon suffered an eight-month long rubbish crisis last year, when the country's main landfill site just south of Beirut was scheduled to close, with no real alternative landfills available. Although the government has temporarily remedied the problem by opening up three other landfills in the city, rubbish collection has continued to be a problem for the Lebanese state in light of the absence of proper waste management facilities.

Hezbollah ministers and their Christian allies boycotted a weekly cabinet meeting, further paralysing Prime Minister Tammam Salam's unity government. They are reportedly in dispute with other members of the government over issues including decrees passed without their approval. This happened as the government is still grappling with the garbage collection problem. Waste has gone uncollected since the capital's main landfill was closed just over a month ago. The government has been unable to agree on a new site. That has led to angry protesters taking to the streets of Beirut, denouncing what they call political corruption. So, is Lebanon heading towards a renewed cycle of unrest? Presenter: Laura Kyle Guests: Kamel Wazne - political analyst and founder of Center of American Strategic Studies in Beirut.

Six months after the long-running trash crisis appeared to be over in Lebanon, piles of rubbish are again clogging up the streets. Two landfills were re-opened in March but promises by the government to open new recycling facilities and a waste-treatment plant have so far not been met. Doctors are now warning of a major public health crisis.
