Averda, the leading international waste and recycling company, has been selected as the environmental partner to manage waste generated by visitors to the Formula 1 race in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, which is taking place between 25-27 March at the brand-new Jeddah Corniche Circuit.
The contract award follows a highly successful operation by Averda at last year’s inaugural race in the city, where the company collected nearly 28,000kg’s of mixed recyclable waste and around 55,000kg’s of general waste.
The 6.174km long Jeddah Corniche Circuit sits on the shores of the Red Sea, 12km from the centre of the country’s second largest city. The race is the fastest street circuit ever seen in Formula 1 and will take place at night, with floodlights erected around the track.
Averda will supply dedicated vehicles and staff, who will work around the clock, to ensure that all waste and litter items from organisers and visitors at this prestigious event will be quickly removed, and responsibly disposed of, ensuring that the locations are kept immaculately clean. This includes depositing a specialised compactor to handle food waste coming from the event’s main kitchen.
In addition, Averda has rebranded their waste collection vehicles used across Jeddah to celebrate the Formula One race taking place in the city.
“We are delighted to have once again been selected as the environmental partner and trusted operator to deliver modern, discreet waste management solutions which ensure the location is clean and attractive for visitors to this highly anticipated and important race event.” explained Mohamed Elsherief, Averda’s Director of Business Development in Saudi Arabia.
