LAST Saturday, the British Embassy Bahrain together with the UK’s Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) led a beach clean-up in Abu Subh Beach near Diraz, in partnership with the Supreme Council for the Environment (SCE) and Clean Up Bahrain.

This initiative formed part of the UK-Bahrain Environment Week series of events taking place until Saturday.

Participants recorded the different types of litter which will be analysed by Cefas and help with future litter and waste monitoring mechanisms.

To help celebrate the National Environment Day, Financial Centre Development Company is launching a new recycling project for Harbour Towers and Harbour Gate this week.

Together with EFS Facilities Services Bahrain we will provide tenants who take part in the project with recycling bins and recycling bags, as well as a dedicated collection area for recycling materials.

This project aims to conserve energy and natural resources and reduce the amount of waste dumped in landfills.

It is our national duty to protect this beautiful country. Launching this project will enable us to help protect Bahrain’s environment and, therefore, help to protect the planet.

The company aims to measure the recycled amount of plastic, cans and paper throughout the year. This will also encourage tenants to become more involved in recycling and more proactive. It is also in response to requests we have received from some tenants who are going to be very willing participants in the scheme.

Angus Campbell, CEO of Financial Centre Development Company.
