averda in Lebanon
Sukleen was established by Maysarah Sukkar in 1994. This Beirut-based environmental solutions company was created to handle municipal waste collection and treatment. Sukomi soon followed in 1996, established to focus on sanitary landfill development and management.

Every day, Sukleen mobilizes more than 3,500 employees, and 190 vehicles to collect more than 2,700 tons of waste from residential, commercial, and industrial zones. With Sukomi, collected waste is manually and mechanically sorted into three distinct categories: industrial, organic, and non-reusable.

Non-reusable waste is compacted into bales weighing up to 15 tons and sent to landfill.
