Hello, Lebanon. It’s me, your friendly Green Patriot. I’ve got a pleasant surprise to share. I say surprise because when I discuss recycling in Lebanon, the vast majority of people state that “there is no recycling in Lebanon” or “many Lebanese do not even know what recycling means.” Granted, there is an element of truth to it. However, it appears as though this is slowly but surely beginning to change. Did you know that there are companies out there that are willing to take and possibly buy your steel, your copper, your glass, your paper, your cardboard, your electronic waste and more? You can be environmentally friendly, get rid of what you don’t need, and possibly get paid for it. That sounds like a triple grand-slam deal.

For a list of companies that will take and possibly buy your waste, please follow this link: http://www.lebanonclean.org/uploads/4/6/0/0/4600018/management_of_recyclable_marterial_for_lebanese_municipalities.pdf

Lebanon, this is an awesome revelation. We can profit on every level by recycling; environmentally, financially, and healthwise. We can do it, Lebanon!!!
