RAK Recycles Initiative
Ras Al Khaimah Waste Management Agency’s ‘RAK Recycles’ initiative aims to divert 75 per cent of waste from landfill by 2021 by encouraging separation of waste at source.
The RAK Recycles initiative will allow residents, schools, Government entities and businesses to separate items at source. Colour-coded green and brown recycling bags will be distributed in the Emirate to encourage separation of food waste from other recyclable items.
By greatly simplifying the recycling process, RAKWMA aims to divert a massive 75 per cent of waste from landfill by 2021, a target that is in line with the goals of the UAE’s Ministry of Climate Change and Environment.
