Averda wins a new 5-year contract in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Averda has signed a 5-year contract with Tadweer - Abu Dhabi’s Centre of Waste Management for the provision of integrated waste management services to the City of Al Ain, North Zone. With the official start-up set for mid-September 2016, Averda is honoured to have been awarded this 5-year contract which will see the company provide its renowned international waste management services to the second biggest city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
In line with the provisions of United Arab Emirate’s federal and regional environmental regulations, Averda’s activities will cover municipal solid waste services; green, bulky, tyre and stockyard waste services; commercial waste services – fully abiding by the Nadafa System requirements – and services related to the public areas in the North zone of Al Ain City.
Awareness raising activities and local workforce employment being fundamental to Averda’s operating business model, the recent contract award in Al Ain will create more than 1,000 jobs locally and, aligned with the U.A.E.’s Ministry of Environment ‘Environmental Education and Awareness Strategy’, will ensure that Averda’s areas of operation are serviced by more than 150 vehicles and 46,000 waste containers.
According to Mrs Philippa Charlton, Averda’s Marketing Director, ‘Averda’s commitment to the residents and businesses in Al Ain North will not be limited to the provision of integrated waste services; we shall support Abu Dhabi’s Environment Vision 2030 by raising the awareness among Al Ain’s residents and businesses with regard to the importance of waste segregation, recycling and creating a more sustainable environment for their city.’
