Bee'ah nabs Burj Khalifa waste management contract
The five-year contract will oversee the introduction of recycling systems and integrated waste management services on the Burj Khalifa property
Bee’ah, a Sharjah-based integrated environment and waste management company, has been awarded a five-year contract by Emaar Prosperities.
As per the contract, Bee’ah has been tasked in implementing recycling logistics and integrated waste management services to the Burj Khalifa property. The firm will manage collection, transportation and processing of waste produced by the mega structure at its dedicated Waste Management Centre in Sharjah.
In addition to the implementation of waste management processes to the building itself, Bee’ah’s policy will also include community awareness campaigns. The initiative aims to instil pro-environmental behaviour amongst the 12,000 occupants of the building.
Khaled Al Huraimel, group CEO at Bee'ah said: "Bee'ah is delighted to win the Burj Khalifa contract and we look forward to fulfilling the environmental requirements of the world's most iconic building."
He added: "Our long and proud commitment to the community has resulted in our geographic expansion within the UAE; Burj Khalifa represents a significant step forward in the company's vision as we expand further into Dubai and seek to strengthen our position as environmental leaders in the Middle East."
The latest addition to the waste management firm’s portfolio joins a slew of Dubai-based contracts acquired over 2015. These include a number of free zones under the umbrella of TECOM Investments, such as Media City, Knowledge Village, Academic City and Internet City. To date, Bee’ah managers more than 65 contracts in Dubai.
