Sharjah-based waste management company Bee’ah will expand into Saudi Arabia after securing three contracts for services for the city of Madinah that will cover its North, West and East districts, it announced on Sunday.

Beea’ah’s services will cover 70 per cent of the city and will engage in solid waste collection and transport services along with disinfection and sanitisation of waste bins.

As per the contracts with the Madinah Municipality, Beea’h will commence operations this month, utilising around 3,000 workers, along with 350 pieces of heavy equipment, including waste collection units, street sweepers and disposal trucks.

“To be chosen as waste management partner for Madinah, known as the Enlightened City and one of the holiest Islamic sites, is a great honour. The two countries share strong ties and have a firm commitment to driving the sustainability agenda. In recognition of this relationship and alignment of environmental goals, Bee’ah will bring its expertise, a proven track record in the UAE, and best industry practices to the partnership. Together, we will ensure sustainable living standards, in line with Madinah’s zero-waste goals and the wider objectives of the Saudi National Transformation Plan,” said Khaled Al Huraimel, group CEO at Bee’ah.

Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 aims to achieve recycling rates of 85 per cent. The population of the three districts serviced by Bee’ah in Madinah is expected to climb from 1.2 million currently to 1.46 million by 2024.

Here in the UAE, Bee’ah has played an instrumental role in aiding Sharjah divert 76 per cent of its waste from landfills, with plans to reach 100 per cent with the launch of the Sharjah Waste to Energy Facility in 2021 by the Bee’ah-Masdar joint venture, Emirates Waste to Energy Company.

As part of its international expansion, Bee’ah secured a waste management contract for Egypt’s new Administrative Capital in January.

Bee’ah has also digitised its waste management services through WastePro+, a fully integrated artificial intelligence (AI) digital solution to streamline its operations from waste collection to treatment and disposal.

In July, Bee’ah revealed plans to convert 47 hectares of Al Saja’a landfill area in Sharjah into a solar energy facility once the landfill is capped.

The project will reportedly be able to generate over 42 megawatts of energy per year.
