HE the Minister of Municipality Dr Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki al-Subaie has stressed the importance of involving the private sector in waste management and recycling projects.

In a speech during a panel discussion at the Second Waste Management Conference and Exhibition, he said that his ministry is counting on raising awareness and involving all stakeholders through the Integrated National Solid Waste Management Programme, and is relying on the private sector to help achieve the strategic objectives for the growth of the circular economy in Qatar.

The minister also revealed an experiment to provide an opportunity for private sector companies by assigning them cleaning operations in three municipalities in the country, including investing in equipment and personnel for a period ranging from 5-7 years. HE Dr al-Subaie added that if the experiment is successful, it would be expanded to cover all the municipalities in the country.
