"The Emirate of Sharjah's goal is to reach zero-waste to landfill by 2015, and we have put in place several facilities and programmes to meet that goal, including the largest Material Recovery Facility in the Middle East, as well as the Residential Recycling programme extending throughout the city of Sharjah with educational and awareness training. said Al Huraimel. "We are very proud to show representatives from our neighbouring Emirate the substantial progress that we, at Bee'ah, have achieved in the last five years to become a leading example of environmental change, and are keen to begin working with the Centre of Waste Management and exchange our experiences together on our journey towards zero-waste throughout both our Emirates."
Earlier this month, Bee'ah was awarded the prestigious Facilities Management Award as well as the Frost and Sullivan Award for 'Best Waste Management Company of the Year' in the Middle East, in recognition of its achievements in advanced waste management infrastructure put into place since 2007.

The WMC houses the Material Recovery Facility, the Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Facility, the Tyre Recycling Facility, the compost plant, and other recycling facilities.
