People can do their part for the environment in Dubai by dropping e-waste off at Enviroserve’s warehouse in Dubai Investment Park or subscribing to recycling bin collection.

Recyclable products, including e-waste, are collected every week for Dh105 per month. For larger items, like television sets, the company can be informed in advance.

Enviroserve is located at First Gulf Properties warehouse, unit FG08, in Dubai Investment Park 1.

Companies can email Enviroserve (info@enviroserve.ae) or call 04885 2434 to speak to a business developer for corporate waste management programmes.

Averda, another Dubai-based waste management firm, has 13 recycling centres in Dubai and e-waste bins at malls as part of a programme with the Dubai Municipality.

They accept 18 kinds of recyclables, including e-waste.
