Lebanon's growing garbage mountains


The Lebanese cabinet met on Monday to discuss how to deal with huge garbage mountains that have accumulated in Beirut and Mount Lebanon.

The crisis came about after the government closed a notorious landfill site but came up with no plan on what to do with waste.

One idea is to export the garbage but critics say it will be too expensive.
