UAE-based Mobile Laundry Service introduced Home Recycling Program

Washmen – a mobile-based laundry service based in Dubai and Abu Dhabi which provides a flexible pick-up and delivery of laundry – recently launched a Home Recycling Program. Customers can leave their recyclables next to a Washmen laundry order and the company drivers will take care of it. This how it has worked so far:

The number of bags that can be sent is three recyclable bags with one order. The recyclables that are accepted are plastic and paper waste, such as empty plastic bottles, clean plastic containers, clean plastic bags, cardboards, newspapers and flyers. Not accepted are food or any organic waste, glass or tin cans, contaminated plastic and paper items such as plastic dishes and cutlery or used toilet paper and used kitchen rolls.

The drivers are instructed to screen the content of the bag. In case non-acceptable items are found in a bag, they will refuse to pick it up. On all orders a surcharge of 1AED is added to support additional operational costs due to this recycling program. The recyclables will be taken to the company’s facility and placed into a specific container that will be then managed by Beeáh – a leading integrated environmental, recycling & waste management company in the UAE – the partner in this recycling program.
