Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi City Municipality, in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Centre for Waste Management (Tadweer), and Al Jabir Contractors carried out a clean-up campaign targeting Al Mafraq Industrial involving the participation of 180 workers. During the campaign, more than 27 tonnes of hazardous waste were removed from the area including glass, plastic bottles, metal cans, paper, plastic bags, and other miscellaneous waste.
