Western Asia – The city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia has launched a ‘massive’ recycling initiative with the opening of a new dump measuring more than 5.2 million square metres where six units are processing around 1440 tonnes of waste per day. The waste is separated manually by 218 workers at 12 lines in each unit. Objects that are smaller than 40 mm in size are segregated while larger material is turned into dry fuel. The organic waste is treated to produce 1500 tonnes of organic fertiliser per day.
