EEG launches “Annual Can Collection Drive 2021” for November 6, 2021
Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) has launched its ‘Annual Can Collection Drive 2021’ which is due to take place on November 6, 2021.
For the “Annual Can Collection Drive 2021”, residents of the UAE were invited to register online and start collecting aluminum cans for collection. Residents can drop off their collected cans on the day of the event. The location of the cans will be revealed one week before the start of the drive.
Earlier this year, during the 25th annual can collection, around 2.57 tonnes of aluminum cans were collected until the end of July. This means that approximately 12.9% of the target (20 tonnes) set by Emirates Environmental Group for the whole of 2021 has been achieved. In 2020, around 11.67 tonnes of aluminum cans were collected for recycling.
The Can Collection Campaign was the first EEG recycling program launched in 1997 to promote and support the aluminum recycling industry and, more importantly, to reduce energy consumption, GHG emissions and divert waste. to landfills. The campaign has been very successful since its inception and has made it possible to recycle 345,247 kg of aluminum cans until the end of August 2021.
EEG commented on the launch:
“We must unite to promote recycling for all and assume our responsibility for preserving the environment. Recycling is the easiest way to conserve resources and the best platform to make sure we close the loop and build a circular economy. “
