Tadweer, Bee’ah’s Waste Sorting and Treatment division, invests heavily in waste sorting, processing, treatment and recycling facilities, to maximize efficiency in using resources, to attain sustainability goals. The division works towards processing waste in such a way that products can be recycled, recovered, regenerated and put back into the economy, to fuel a sustainable and environmentally conscious cycle.
A number of recycling facilities have been set up at the Waste Management Centre including those catering to paper, plastic, tyres, rubber, vehicles, metal, electronic waste, industrial liquid waste, construction & demolition waste etc. The Tyre Recycling Facility has the only cryogenic system in the Middle East and recycles around 3,000,000 tyres annually, while the Construction & Demolition Waste Recycling Facility is responsible for processing 500,000 tons of waste annually and happens to be one of the busiest in the world. The Liquid Waste Recycling Facility is equipped to separate oil and waste from water. The Bee’ah Waste Management Centre also houses a compost plant which processes organic and vegetation waste. The E-waste Dismantling & Processing Facility dismantles, recycles and disposes of consumer goods and counterfeits, by separating them based on functionality, reparability and hazardous nature of components. Housing one of the world’s most powerful shredding machines, the Car and Metal Shredding & Recycling Facility, shreds old car bodies and separates metal, glass and plastic components for recycling. Recognizing the increasing scope and need for segregation in recycling, Bee’ah is in the process of building new facilities for Wood Waste Processing & Recycling, Used Cooking Oil Processing & Recycling, Paper & Cardboard Recycling, Plastic Film Recycling and PET Plastic Recycling.

Tadweer also has a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) which is the third largest in the world and the largest in the Middle East. The MRF is a specialized facility that sorts and separates recyclable materials from municipal solid waste, through mechanical and manual processes. It has an annual capacity of 600,000 tons, processing around 2000 tons, daily, of which an estimated 70% is being recycled and thus, diverted from the landfill. Paper, plastic, aluminum and steel cans are sent to specialized facilities and processed for reuse in the economy, while the organic waste is sent to the compost plant, and non-recyclables are deposited in the engineered landfill.
Rubber products are typically recycled into jogging tracks, rubber tiles & other useful materials while tyres are converted to crumb rubber, which is used to create stadium playing areas, miniature golf courses, play grounds etc. The waste from the Construction & Demolition Waste Recycling Facility is reused as aggregate for roads, pavements and walkways while the water collected, after processing, from the Liquid Waste Recycling Facility is used for irrigation & energy purposes. Waste from the compost plant is converted to fertilizer and used for irrigation, farming and the greening of Sharjah’s pavements and streets. To know more about our recycled products Click Here
