UNIFIL-supported waste management facility inaugurated in south Lebanon
UNIFIL’s Spanish Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Fernandez Romero inaugurated a waste management facility in the south-eastern Lebanese municipality of Kleyaa on Tuesday.
The new facility, supported by Spain, will collect garbage not only from Kleyaa but also from the neighbouring villages of Deir Mimess and Bourj al-Malouke.
It will convert the organic waste into useful manures and inorganic substances. UNIFIL’s Spanish Battalion donated more than 26,700 Euros (≈ US$ 29,800) for the project.
The Mayor of Kleyaa, Ronith, Deputy Mayor Kaem Makan, representatives of the Lebanese Armed Forces and the Kleyaa municipality attended Tuesday’s inaugural ceremony.
In their remarks, both the Mayor and the Spanish Battalion Commander stressed the importance of working together to ensure stability in south Lebanon.
The UNIFIL project strives to reinforce stability in southern Lebanon and strengthen capabilities of the local authorities.
