Recovery

Tadweer also has a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) which is the third largest in the world and the largest in the Middle East. The MRF is a specialized facility that sorts and separates recyclable materials from municipal solid waste, through mechanical and manual processes. It has an annual capacity of 600,000 tons, processing around 2000 tons, daily, of which an estimated 70% is being recycled and thus, diverted from the landfill. Paper, plastic, aluminum and steel cans are sent to specialized facilities and processed for reuse in the economy, while the organic waste is sent to the compost plant, and non-recyclables are deposited in the engineered landfill.

 

Products

Rubber products are typically recycled into jogging tracks, rubber tiles & other useful materials while tyres are converted to crumb rubber, which is used to create stadium playing areas, miniature golf courses, play grounds etc. The waste from the Construction & Demolition Waste Recycling Facility is reused as aggregate for roads, pavements and walkways while the water collected, after processing, from the Liquid Waste Recycling Facility is used for irrigation & energy purposes. Waste from the compost plant is converted to fertilizer and used for irrigation, farming and the greening of Sharjah’s pavements and streets. To know more about our recycled products Click Here
