Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer), in collaboration with Al Dhafra Region Municipality; Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, and Abu Dhabi Farmers Services Centre has launched a two-month awareness campaign in Al Dhafra Region titled ‘Al Dhafra Deserves’. The launch coincided with Tadweer’s participation in the 14th edition of the Liwa Date Festival currently underway in the region and featured a workshop to introduce the key stakeholders and their roles in the drive.
Seeking to educate the public about the best ways to curb undesirable habits and practices that disturb the aesthetics of the general landscape, the Al Dhafra Deserves campaign, will run throughout the months of August and September and will include several workshops on effective waste disposal. In addition, municipal authorities will join hands with Tadweer in conducting inspection tours to ensure the aesthetic appeal of the landscape is maintained.
Al Dhafra Municipality will also coordinate with Tadweer to educate store owners about the need to ensure public hygiene and monitor any disruptions to the landscape at construction sites and across residential areas. For their part, Abu Dhabi Farmers Services Centre and Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority will introduce farm owners to best-in-class waste management practices.
Besides, Tadweer has invited the public to report any violations that can have an adverse environmental impact and eventually cause health problems and diseases by contacting the Abu Dhabi Government call center at 800555.
