The rubbish crisis is back in Lebanon, and so is #YouStink
Social media has seen a resurgence of anger and resentment by Lebanese citizens towards their government for failing to adequately organise rubbish collections a year after the first protests over the crisis.
Refuse workers have reportedly been on strike as the weekend saw the pile-up worsen.
Last month people took to the streets of Beirut to protest the new waste management plan which proposed opening new landfills to deal with the overflow of rubbish that has plagued many towns including Burj Hammoud- an overpopulated neighbourhood that made headlines for its "garbage mountain".
Worse than rubbish
Some mockingly offer Lebanon's rubbish to other countries
Some think Lebanon doesn't need a president
The discontent over the rubbish crisis represents deeper social and economic issues affecting Lebanon.
With Lebanon being without a president for more than two years, the lack of solutions for waste management are a sign of its dysfunctional political system.
