DM to distribute new bins to collect e-waste

posted on 26/09/2014: 2039 views


Based on the directives of Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality, the Waste Management Department plans to launch a new service providing specific bins for electronic waste in line with the best international practices in collecting electronic waste.

Salah Amiri, Assistant Director-General of Dubai Municipality for environment and public health services sector pointed out that most electronic equipment contains lead and many chemical components that pollute soil and leak into the ground water, which in turn causes huge pollution which in turn poses high risks to bio-diversity and nature.

Nowadays, families and individuals have thousands of electronic electrical devices that collectively weigh millions of tons. Thus, the Waste Management Department has made an agreement with Averda Co. to design an advanced bin exclusively for electronic waste which will be placed in public places such as parks, DM centres, commercial centres and cooperative societies spread over in different areas of the emirate.

He stressed that the move comes as part of the keenness of Dubai Municipality to meet the requirements of its customers in tune with developments in the field of using technologies and related devices with the aim of helping users with the safe disposal of e-waste, ensuring a clean and sustainable environment in the Emirate of Dubai. – Emirates News Agency, WAM http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395270124128.html
