Malta, 14 January 2015:
The government has approved the use of international companies in dealing with rubbish and recycling.
The . . .[restrict]decision was made at yesterday’s cabinet meeting of Prime Minister Abdullah Thinni’s government, the only internationally recognized government in Libya, in the eastern city of Al-Beida.
The approval to sign ‘’contracts with international companies’’ for cleaning services and rubbish recycling was to give priority to companies in the rubbish collection sector first.
Equally, these contracts would stipulate the condition that these companies receive no-upfront payments and no payments for the first six months of the contract.
In the first stage of the contracts, these companies would be obliged to gather rubbish in pre-approved sites, thereafter the companies could move to the second stage of the contract of recycling.
Contacted companies would be obliged to train or retrain the current employees of the General Services Company – the state company currently tasked with rubbish collection. [/restrict]
