Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) has carried out a month-long campsite clean up awareness drive.
The drive, in partnership with Abu Dhabi City Municipality and Abu Dhabi Police, aims to encourage people to ensure that they maintain desert campsites and dispose of waste in the right way rather than littering.
Dr. Salem Al Kaabi, Director General of Tadweer, said, "In carrying out the campsite clean-up awareness drive for the second year in a row, we aimed to promote the cleanliness of public places and ensure the aesthetic appeal of the emirate. This supports Abu Dhabi government’s objective of achieving sustainable development as envisaged by Abu Dhabi Environment Vision 2030."
Dr. Al Kaabi added, "The clean-up drive focused on promoting sound environmental practices among campers by educating them about safe and eco-friendly waste disposal methods. Such efforts will help us create a clean, and safe environment in the emirate. At Tadweer, we plan to conduct more of these awareness campaigns on a regular basis to ensure a healthy, clean and safe desert environment for all."
