The Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) has partnered with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) to open a new amenity for recyclable waste in Abu Dhabi. Located in the Ruwais Housing Complex in the Al Dhafra Region, the facility will help educate residents about the proper methods to dispose their daily household waste.
As part of its continued support for the UAE National Agenda 2021, Tadweer said it is working on several initiatives to promote waste segregation at the source, develop innovative waste disposal solutions, reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, and transform waste into raw materials to support recycling industries, said a statement from the company.
The centre has assigned ADNOC’s service provider responsible for providing cleaning services in the housing complex to manage the facility.
“The opening of our new civic amenity for recyclable waste in Ruwais city demonstrates Tadweer’s sustained efforts to ensure optimal utilization of waste as an input to the production of eco-friendly products that benefit the local economy. In supporting the UAE’s strategic plans in waste sector, Tadweer reaffirms its leadership in the effective management of waste,” said director general Dr Salem Al Kaabi.
He added, “In providing such micro units for collecting wastes from the Emirate’s neighborhoods and residential areas, Tadweer ensures active public participation in segregation of different types of waste at source. This allows residents to support the Center’s continued efforts to benefit from recyclable materials and minimise the amount of waste.”
