Dubai: Enviroserve started Green Truck in 2014; in an effort to offer residential communities and corporate offices in the UAE an environmentally conscience way to recycle their electronic waste. As of now close to 1,500 green bins have been placed throughout Dubai and Abu Dhabi; these bins are collected weekly by the Green Truck then all the dry recyclables (only in Dubai) and electronic waste are segregated and sorted before the collected recyclable items are transported to The Recycling Hub by Enviroserve for reuse.
Lyes Yahiaoui – Enviroserve-UAE CEO, says “Green Truck has been one of the most integral part of Enviroserve and the most successful project. This is the only initiative in UAE for the household users which truly segregate from ground waste and recycle up to 98% of the waste, which gets collected. With the help of Green Truck, we are also reaching out to small medium enterprises and helping them recycle their waste. We have seen an extremely overwhelming response and would like to double our capacity in 2021. Enviroserve is always committed towards bringing new initiatives for the people of UAE, with latest technologies and contributing to saving the planet.”
