Abu Dhabi, UAE: In a bid to encourage public participation in its efforts to promote waste segmentation at source, Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer), in collaboration with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), has opened a new civic amenity for recyclable waste in Ruwais City in Al Dhafra Region.
As part of its continued support for the UAE National Agenda 2021, Tadweer is working on various initiatives to promote waste segregation at source, develop innovative waste disposal solutions, reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, and transform waste into raw materials to support recycling industries.
Located in Ruwais Housing Complex in Al Dhafra Region, Tadweer’s latest civic amenity for recyclable waste will help educate residents about the proper methods to dispose their daily household waste.
The Center has assigned ADNOC’s service provider responsible for providing cleaning services in the housing complex to manage the facility.
His Excellency Dr Salem Al Kaabi, Director General of Tadweer, said: “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.”
“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 minimize the amount of waste.
“The opening of this vital facility articulates Tadweer’s commitment to adopting the latest technologies to keep pace with the steady population increase in the Emirate. At Tadweer, it is our top priority to protect the environment in a sustainable manner and ensure the health and safety of the community in the Emirate,” Al Kaabi added.
