Diac recycling drive enters 2nd phase
Dubai, March 13, 2010
The recycling campaign of Dubai International Academic City (Diac), the higher education free zone, has entered the second phase following the arrival of 200 recycled carton bins produced by paper collected from within the Diac premises.
Every university campus and office located at Diac, a member of Tecom Investments, will receive one set of three bins for the collection and segregation of paper, plastic and cans at source.
‘Eco-warriors’ from the house-keeping team of Idama, the facilities management company and Tecom’s business partner, have been mandated to dispose the recyclables in the bins set up at the community recycling centre.
The initiative will substantially increase the quantity of recyclables collected and, in turn, help prevent the waste of potentially useful materials that would otherwise end up in landfill, a statement said.
Other green initiatives at Diac include energy metering for various end users, de-lamping of offices, and reserving five per cent of the parking space for low-emitting, fuel efficient vehicles and hybrid cars. – TradeArabia News Service
