Abu Dhabi prefers awareness to compulsory law on segregation

Tadweer, the Centre of Waste Management-Abu Dhabi, believes in raising awareness on segregating waste at source before implementing compulsory laws to prompt residents to follow the practice.

Awareness is a critical component of effective waste management because it is important to educate people about the importance of recycling and the methods to do so properly.

?We also need to engage them in finding lasting solutions for the huge amounts of waste produced in the emirate. Effective waste management starts with individuals at home, who take waste segregation seriously. Therefore, we need to spread the message, and make people come forward voluntarily and get involved in our efforts to create a safe and sustainable environment for them?.

Tadweer has organised a series of awareness campaigns to educate residents about the importance of waste segregation and disposal in the designated bins ? green bins for recyclable waste and black ones for organic waste.
