After a successful Desert Cleanup on Earth Day in April earlier this year, Averda, Sunshine Tours, and Hilton Abu Dhabi joined forces again to collect waste from the Abu Dhabi Desert as part of the “Let’s Do It World Cleanup 2012″ initiative!
On Thursday, 13 September 2012, the volunteers got up with the birds and gathered at Sunshine Tours’ Desert Camp, located between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain Road. Averda provided them with pick-up sticks, gloves, trash bags, and Averda caps with a pick-up truck on standby to collect the waste removed from the desert.
The waste collected was taken back to Averda’s Musaffah Operations Facility, where it was weighed and segregated further, with all recyclables sent for further processing and recycling.
It was a great morning, the team had so much fun and it was great working together towards such an important cause!!
