Innovative Dubai Company Paves the Way for Electronic Waste Recycling in the Middle East, Africa & Caucasus
Electronic waste continues to be a major concern around the globe but one pioneering company headquartered in Dubai is leading the way.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, November 13, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Electronic waste continues to be a major concern around the globe, but one pioneering company headquartered in Dubai is leading the way.
Enviroserve is a trailblazer when it comes to electronic waste recycling in the Middle East. From humble beginnings of mobile phone collections with a staff of four in 2004, the recycling company has grown to over 50 and 8 branch offices throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Caucasus. On the back of newly inked partnerships with major international partners Wisetek (Ireland) and ERI (USA), Enviroserve is certainly a name one should get used to hearing.
These efforts were recently recognized by industry experts when Enviroserve was named the Electrical & Electronic Equipment Recycling Company of the Year at the Middle East Waste & Recycling Awards.
“On behalf of the entire Enviroserve family, both in the UAE and throughout our international operations, partners and associates, I am delighted our efforts have been recognized. This award is a tribute to Enviroserve’s pioneering spirit and leadership in the recycling industry,” says Brian Wilkie, Co-Founder & Chairman.
But this award is just the tip of the iceberg as Enviroserve has much more in store for the recycling industry in the Middle East and Africa with the highly-anticipated opening of The Recycling Hub at Dubai Industrial City set for early 2019. The USD$30 Million facility features state-of-the-art Swiss technology that features zero-to-landfill and zero-to-air process. It will be the final destination for waste electronics from South Africa in the south to the Caucasus in the north.
The Recycling Hub is the world’s largest fully-integrated electronics recycling facility with a processing capacity of nearly 40 Million KG of electronic waste annually. The plant also features a brand protection service, IT refurbishment center, and refrigerant gas reclamation, division.
“In the age of data security, the importance of the ITAD division at The Recycling Hub cannot be understated. Secure data destruction is so important to our clients. Our brand protection and refrigerant gas reclamation services support the needs of our customers. The Enviroserve team continues to delight by developing new and exciting solutions for their waste disposal problems, and we will continue to lead the way in 2019 and beyond,” says Stuart Fleming, Co-Founder & Group CEO.
GCC countries produce an average of 14.5 KG of electronic waste per person. As our reliance on technology increases, the amount of electronic waste in the market continues to grow.
