Questionnaire on the contribution of the community
Municipal solid waste (i.e. waste generated from
individuals originating from residential, commercial, professional, industrial
or other sources) is one of the environmental challenges that is tackled by the
UAE due to its harmful effects on public health and the environment.
The growth of population and rising standards of
living in UAE lead to an increase in the generation of waste, therefore the
construction of modern and innovative waste treatment facilities is required to
reduce the proportion of waste transferred to landfills, which contributes to
the national agenda of UAE Vision 2021.
And here comes the importance of involving members of
the community through their cooperation with the competent authorities.
