Feasibility study for the management of non-hazardous solid waste
The study covers five municipalities, including Dammam, representing a total of over 2 million people. The project goal is to propose solutions to improve the current waste management system. This project includes an integrated center for the treatment of non-hazardous solid waste aimed to reduce the environmental impact stemming from the use of the current waste disposal site.OUR SERVICES:
