More than a metric tonne of waste was collected and cleaned up from Fujairah this week, as part of the ‘Clean Up UAE’ campaign. 

Organised by the Emirates Environmental Group, in association with the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, the event began at Dibba Beach in the eastern emirate on Tuesday.

More than 150 people participated – including mainly enthusiastic students from local schools. 

The event is to encourage residents across the emirates to get involved, and plenty hope to have the EEG visit their area. 

“This year, EEG received a lot of requests from many stakeholders to organise the campaign in their areas which is a sign that the objectives of the campaign were perfectly reached over the last 15 years and the communities are now keen on being involved in it.”
