Sustainability at DISD

Recycling Stations

Throughout the whole school building recycling containers are set up: in the primary school lobby, in the secondary school ground floor and 1st floor, in the canteen in the entrance hall and in the kindergarten. It can be separated by paper, plastic and residual waste.

The sorted material is collected by our supplier AMW and mixing of the material is avoided while loaded on the vehicle.

Depending on the type of material, e.g. paper/cardboard or plastic, it is either further processed in the UAE or ballasted and finally exported to a commodity trader.
