Sidon's streets are trash-free, ending a crisis which had engulfed the city with putrid odors for almost a week.About 450 workers at the plant in Siniq, south of Sidon, took action because they had not received their wages for over a year, due to a 13-month delay in the state's payment to the plant for waste treatment in Sidon and surrounding areas.The workers had demanded to receive their wages before Eid al-Adha, which began Sunday. The plant in Siniq is responsible for treating Sidon's waste along with over 12 other municipalities in the Sidon and Zahrani Municipal Union.However, Sidon Mayor Mohammad al-Saudi told The Daily Star that he felt the timing of the staff's action was irresponsible.
