Bee’ah opens recycling centre in Sharjah
Sharjah, June 6, 2011
UAE-based Bee’ah, a leading environmental and waste management company, has launched the first public recycling centre in Sharjah at Al Qasba, coinciding with World Environment Day on June 5.
“At Bee’ah, we always strive to empower the community of Sharjah to be responsible for saving our environment,” Khaled Al Huraimel, chief executive officer at Bee’ah.
“By taking on an active role in caring for their city, individuals will feel accountable to making a difference and become leading examples within their community, encouraging others to also become avid recyclers,” he added.
Bee’ah’s recycling depot is the latest of many infrastructure tools launched by the company to encourage Sharjah’s residents and facilitate their disposal of recyclables.
The public recycling center has been designed for mass-recycling and allows for waste to be divided up in three separate container sections (paper; cardboard; plastic and metal cans).
The recycling depot is permanently positioned at Al Qasba, with more expected in other locations in the future throughout the city of Sharjah; and will serve as yet another recycling touch-point in the city for residents in Sharjah, who adopt recycling as a lifestyle.
Dina Al Nakhi, events manager, Al Qasba Development Authority, said: "We are very pleased with the great participation that the World Environment Day has witnessed. It is a clear indicator to the environmental awareness in our society and a pleasure of ours to host such an event in collaboration with Bee’ah, through which we both take on our social responsibility to a whole new level."
The public recycling centre at Al Qasba, a first-of-a-kind venture within the Middle East, allows for recycling large quantities of recyclable waste by diverting them from the landfill, but is engineered to also eliminate foul odours, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
