Dulsco collected 86,450 plastic bottles and 4300 glass bottles during the recently held Standard Chartered Dubai marathon and left the city clean and green post this mega event. The Green Team from Dulsco, including staff volunteers and workers, were present at the event to ensure that the recyclables are segregated at source meticulously and later recycled.
Dulsco had placed more than 80 green bins for collecting recyclables and 30 black bins for general waste. Over 100 volunteers from Dulsco were present to manage this process.
In its efforts to go green, the 2015 Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon – held under the auspices of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council – had teamed up with Dulsco as its official recycling partner.
S. Madhumohan, Director, Waste Management, Dulsco, said, “This was a mammoth task for us. Our main objective was to educate people at the event and ensure that the waste is put in the right bins and also trigger a behavioural change in them towards the environment. We are glad to state that the participants at this major event were supportive and helped us achieve our recycling objective.”
