be’ah launches mobile waste recycling unit

31 Oct 2020

Continuing its efforts towards a greener, sustainable Oman, be’ah has launched the first Mobile Recycling Unit in Batinah governorate as a step to implement recycling initiatives to recover value from different materials, and reduce the amount of waste disposed in engineered landfills which is the core of the company’s waste diversion strategy. 

Such initiatives encourage the public to practise and support the concept of waste sorting and segregation from the source. 

The recycling units will be located in Barka and Rustaq as an initial stage, and then the service will be expanded to cover other wilayats like Musannah and Nakhal. 

Eng Abdullah Mohamed al Balushi, operations manager for South Batinah, said in a statement, “We have successfully launched a Mobile Recycling Unit initially in the wilayat of Barka. It consists of four sorting categories for plastic, glass, paper, cardboard and tin cans.

The unit is supervised by be’ah employees and the governorate’s operating company in order to spread awareness, promote the concept of waste sorting and reduce waste generation at source. The unit is expected to continue in the wilayat of Barka for ten days based on its effectiveness. The rest of the units will be distributed as per the company’s planned timeline.”
