The waste management department at Dubai Municipality will be expanding its ‘My City, My Environment’ drive to more areas in the Emirate, with an aim to encourage more residents to recycle and segregate waste at source, thereby reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.

The department, in collaboration with its stakeholders, launched the drive across the Dubai neighbourhoods of Jumeirah 1, 2 and 3, Al Safa 1 and 2, Umm Suqueim 1, 2 and 3, Al Manara, Umm Al Seif and Al Barsha 2 and 3.

Abdul Majeed Saifaie, director of waste management department, Dubai Municipality, said: “Dubai adheres to global standards when it comes to a cleaner and greener environment. As we are moving forward to hosting Expo 2020, our aim is to make Dubai clean and green.”

“Hence, we have launched several such initiatives to create a healthy ecosystem,” Saifaie said. “We are confident that this unique initiative will be a great success with the help of public support. In fact, Dubai residents have always shown great support for anything we do to encourage more recycling in this city.”

Saifaie added: “This campaign will be wide ranging, and we are grateful to have the support of Dulsco, averda and Trashco for their dedication in promoting this initiative, and helping us to take this message across to each and every doorstep.”
