KUFM and Istidamah win green services contract
United Real Estate Co. requests waste management, recycling services
Kuwait United Facilities Management and Istidamah have won a contract with United Real Estate Company (URC) to enhance the environmental services offered at URC’s commercial centres and office towers in Kuwait.
Under this agreement, Istidamah will provide recycling bins to collect and sort paper, cardboard, and plastic materials.
The agreement aims to engage the public by making recycling bins available at three commercial centres: Marina Mall, Souk Al Maseel, and Souk Al Muttaheda, in addition to two of its office buildings located in Kuwait City, Al Madina Tower and Al Shaheed Tower.
Ahmad Al Kandari, CEO of Kuwait United Facilities Management Company (KUFM), a subsidiary of URC, indicated that this agreement is in line with KUFM's strategy to provide waste management services in many of the facilities they manage. This includes the recycling of paper and plastic materials reducing the emission of toxic gases from decomposition in traditional landfills which leads to a decrease in health and environmental issues caused by these emissions.
Khalid Mohamed Al-Mutawa, chairman and managing director of Istidamah said, "We are very pleased to sign this agreement with KUFM and we look forward to working together in the near future. Istidamah will bring its professional expertise, modern environmental solutions, and recycling programs that will contribute to the reduction of health and environmental issues caused by waste burial and traditional waste management methods."
