Legal Framework

It is important to have a legislative framework that defines the collection, transportation, recovery and disposal of waste in order to build a sustainable integrated waste management ecosystem. This kind of legislations and directives ensure waste is recovered or disposed without endangering human health or the environment. Permits, registration and regular inspections ensure that all adhere to the requirements. These legislations also ensure that appropriate steps are taken to prevent or reduce waste production, recover waste by means of recycling or use waste as a source of energy.
be'ah is collaborating with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs (MECA) to review the current laws and regulations for waste management and is working towards establishing a new framework of regulations for waste management as per the Government'’s vision for this sector.
