Khoury Contracting lowest
bidder in Burj Hammoud tender
Landfill to contain 1.4 million tons over four years
Khoury Contracting Co. is the lowest bidder among six companies participating in a tender to operate a landfill in Burj Hammoud as well as to construct a breakwater.
“This tender was a bit different than that of Costa Brava, because the winner is requested to remove the trash mountain already on the site,” said Dany Khoury, Chairman of Khoury Contracting. The trash ‘mountain’ is estimated to contain 3.5 million cubic meters of trash.
Khoury’s bid is $109 million, including VAT. The winning company is required to fill the landfill with 1.4 million tons of waste over the contract’s four-year term.
Other tenders for the collection of waste will be announced. “Everything is possible. We might participate in that too,” he said.
