As part of its efforts to preserve the environment and limit the depletion of its resources, the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) said that it has sorted around 838,000 tons of waste from the start of 2022 until the end of September. The sorted waste included plastic, paper and mixed junk, as well as solid waste including metal and wood, all of which was collected from the Center’s landfills in Al Ain, Al Dhafra and Abu Dhabi.

During the first nine months of 2022, the Center managed to sort more than 110,000 tons of plastic; 560,000 tons of wood; around 28,000 tons of paper and cardboard waste; and 950 tons of mixed junk that included textiles and cork, in addition to more than 14,000 tons of iron and around 24,000 tons of aluminum. The Center sorts waste ahead of processing and recycling it into environmentally friendly materials that can be utilized in several fields and vital national projects, in line with its efforts to provide the most innovative solutions to maintain the sustainability of environmental resources.

The Center’s teams sorted the waste using the best practices at its eight landfills – Hameem landfill in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain landfill, Madinat Zayed landfill, Al Mirfa, Al Silaa, Ghayathi, Liwa and Jaffn – in addition to one engineering landfill located in Al Ain city.

Eng. Abdul Mohsin Al Katheeri, director of the projects and facilities department at Tadweer, said, “Tadweer is committed to utilizing the most advanced and integrated solutions and technologies for sorting and recycling waste by employing the best practices to extract valuable materials from all types of waste and convert them into environmentally friendly materials that support the circular economy.”

Tadweer provides 17 centers for the collection of recyclable materials (waste mines) in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, distributed across the Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra regions.

The Center has also provided waste container unloading services in various locations in the Emirate, including Al Ain, Al Dhafra and Abu Dhabi.
