Dubai Municipality has launched the Recyclable Materials Collection Center project using cargo shipping containers, which is considered one of the smartest and most environmentally sustainable centres.
The Centre aims to reduce waste production in the emirate of Dubai, promote a culture of waste separation, and raise recycling rates, thus enhancing the quality of life of individuals in general.
The project comes in line with the Municipality’s corporate social responsibility towards all segments of society, and in support of its efforts in implementing sustainable projects in the field of separating waste from the source and diverting it from the landfill path.
Dubai Municipality emphasised that the launch of this project represents a significant move in advancing integrated solutions that seek to lower Dubai's waste, adopting safe and healthy disposal methods and waste treatment process, as well as raising recycling rates.
The facility will produce a number of beneficial outcomes in line with Dubai Integrated Waste Management Strategy 2021–2041. The most significant among these will be promoting the culture of separating waste at the source and reducing waste that ends up in landfills, which will in turn help improve the recycling industry in Dubai.
The Municipality further stated that the Center will be open 24/7 to serve customers, including People of Determination, highlighting how it is designed to enable customers to utilise it without leaving their vehicles, through the designated entry and exit points.
