Bee'ah expansion to create 750 jobs by end of 2011
Firm launches first 14t street flushing tanker in the Middle East
Bee’ah plans to expand its division, Tandeef’s, fleet of vehicles and street sweepers this year, creating 750 jobs.
The Public Private Partnership (PPP) environmental company recently launched the Middle East’s first 14t street-flushing tanker by cleaning roads with water.
It has also introduced a recycling programme providing bins in residential towers to collect waste and free door-to-door training on how to recycle at home.
Tandeef celebrates its first anniversary this year, servicing over 800,000 residents in Sharjah.
“At Bee’ah, we strive to turn waste into resources, and want Sharjah to be at the forefront of a positive environmental change, leading the way for a greener and better place to live and work,” said HE Salim Bin Mohammed Al Owais, chairman, Bee’ah.
Tandeef was launched in January 2010 and collects over 600,000t of non-hazardous municipal solid waste a year.
As part of Bee’ah’s waste-management strategy, Tandeef is on an aggressive timeline to expand its collection programmes, complementing Bee’ah’s recycling programme, to include all segments of the community such as residential, commercial and industrial.
“We are proud of the advances made at Tandeef throughout its first operational year and aim to continue to intensify our efforts and exceed our accomplishments in the coming years,” said Bee'ah CEO Khaled Al Huraimel.
