OTS is one of the few companies in the industry who offer the complete ‘one-stop-shop’ in the UAE, has stepped up efforts to expand its waste management and recycling capabilities to support government initiatives to reduce the amount of waste generated in the country.
According to environmental advocates, each UAE resident generates around 2.2 to 2.5kgs of waste each day. A recent study by the Centre of Waste Management-Abu Dhabi revealed that Abu Dhabi generates over 30,000 tonnes of waste daily, while a separate study indicated that waste generated annually in Dubai is about 13.9 million tonnes.
The company shall have a large fleet of vehicles and equipment to handle waste collection and transport. “Wherever we collect waste, we try to segregate as much recyclables as we can, including paper, plastic, metal, glass, etc. OTS shall have a tie-up with certain recycling companies, so most of the material that can be recycled is received by them. The remaining material is sent to the landfill.”
