The street cleaning service uses over 1.5 million plastic bags every year in Bahrain, posing a heavy burden on the environment. As an effort in this regard, Urbaser Bahrain launched an initiative to turn old staff uniforms into waste bags and replace the plastic bags that are currently used in the cleaning. This practice will cut the number of plastic bags used in street cleaning by half in 2019. Today, such cloth bags have been used on the newly designed trolleys, which are also equipped with a mini-fridge for cool liquids in order to improve the working conditions for staff who have to work in extreme high temperature of over 40 degrees Celsius. This new type of trolley has been introduced in Salman city and will be introduced into other cities in the future.
