Bee’ah bags 3 new contracts in Madinah, Saudi Arabia
Bee’ah, the Middle East’s award-winning sustainability pioneer, is expanding into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in support of Saudi Vision 2030, after being awarded three contracts for waste management services in Madinah, covering the North, West and East regions.
Bee’ah services will be conducted for 70 percent of the city, serving a population of 1.2 million people, as contracted by Madinah Municipality. Bee’ah will provide solid waste collection and transport services along with disinfection and sanitisation of waste bins. Operations are scheduled to begin in August, utilising around 3,000 workers, along with 350 pieces of heavy equipment, including waste collection units, street sweepers and disposal trucks. Bee’ah will also conduct training sessions, workshops, and awareness campaigns.
As the region’s first fully integrated environmental management company, Bee’ah will deploy its end-to-end waste management solutions based on the twin pillars of sustainability and digitalisation. The goal is to provide a comprehensive roadmap for waste services, helping transform Madinah into a sustainable city of the future.
Salim bin Mohamed Al Owais, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Bee’ah, “As Bee’ah continues to prove itself as the leading sustainability pioneer here in the UAE, we are delighted to introduce advanced waste management services and work with Madinah Municipality to ensure a sustainable quality of life for over 1.2 million people in Madinah City.”
The partnership with Madinah to work toward a sustainable future for the city comes as Bee’ah closes in on its zero-waste objective in the UAE Emirate of Sharjah. Having already achieved the Middle East’s highest waste diversion rate of 76 percent in Sharjah, Bee’ah is also building the UAE’s first waste-to-energy plant in a joint venture partnership with Masdar. Upon completion in 2021, the Emirate will reach 100 percent waste diversion from landfills.
