Hala Al Khayyat (Abu Dhabi)
The Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center “Tadweer” is studying the implementation of projects in the field of regulating the waste trade sector in the emirate in cooperation with strategic partners, and licensing companies working in the field of cooking oils, used lubricants and wood. The center explained that these projects come within the framework of the center’s continuous efforts to reduce waste sent to 75% of landfills.
The license will allow qualified companies to develop and establish plants for treating and recycling reusable wood waste, such as construction waste, palm tree residues, etc., and used oils. The waste waste is sent after sorting to treatment plants to be converted into usable materials or can be treated internally by qualified companies.
During the current months and before the end of this year, the center is working on developing a program to link accredited laboratories with the licensing system, developing and unifying the complaints system, correcting the situation of violators through electronic services, in addition to linking with the system of the Department of Municipalities and Transport to complete the automation of demolition and construction transactions, and linking with the Center Integrated transport. During the first half of this year, the center issued 1,564 permits through the Licensing Department, while the number of licensed vehicles reached 4,605 vehicles. The center developed a set of standard work procedures manuals for electronic manifests and non-hazardous waste.
Through its programs, Tadweer seeks to treat 85% of municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial waste, demolition and construction waste, farm and farm waste and dead animals, and 100% of hazardous and medical waste by 2030.
