There Is A Giant River of RUBBISH Flowing Through Beirut…

Beirut has a HUGE Rubbish Issue. Its turned into a River... Click to Tweet
Beirut appears to have the worlds first Rubbish River flowing through its city.

Originally reported back in July 2015, the mass of garbage bags collating in Lebanon has continued to the point of denial by the government… (Denial, DeNile, The Nile)

It’s the result of a closure to the cities main landfill site.

Residents are complaining about the stench of the ugly river although the consistent use of white baggage does give it a somewhat arty feel.

A large rainfall enabled the garbage to literally flow through the streets and now the government are even more confused about how to rid this issue. Perhaps they can hope for another rainfall or two.
