DEWA employees recycle 499,541 plastic bottles and aluminium as part of recycling initiative 

by Madaline Dunn

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) recycling initiative has led to DEWA employees recycling 499,541 plastic bottles and aluminium cans from October 2022 until the end of December 2023, it has been shared. This is equivalent to diverting 7,108 kilograms of waste from landfills.

DEWA provides smart machines to recycle plastic bottles and aluminium cans in some of its buildings, which are operated using DEWA’s Smart Office app for employees. 

The machine reads the QR code on the smart app, and the employee receives points for each recycling operation to enter into a raffle draw to win valuable monthly prizes. 

Until the end of 2023, DEWA honoured 49 employees.

DEWA noted that it has organised 13 awareness activities for employees to highlight the importance of adopting a responsible and sustainable lifestyle by:

  • Implementing sustainable practices at home and in the workplace, enhancing the efficiency of electricity and water consumption, 
  • Limiting waste, 
  • Reducing the consumption of plastic, and 
  • Reusing and recycling plastic bottles and aluminium cans.
