The tallest tower in the world - Burj Khalifa – has been added to the portfolio of acclaimed clients being serviced by Bee’ah, the Middle East’s leading award-winning fully integrated environment and waste management company. A highly competitive tendering process saw Bee’ah awarded a five-year contract to introduce recycling logistics, create sustainability awareness amongst the tenants and residents, and to provide integrated waste management services to the prestigious landmark building, leading to a more sustainable platform for the upcoming World Expo 2020 which will be held in Dubai.
