The project involves a 10-year O&M contract for municipal solid waste transfer, treatment and disposal and building works, to be carried out over 36 months. The works include the construction of transfer facilities at Mafraq and landfill and composting units at Al-Dhafra to replace the

existing landfill site.

The programme is being overseen by a government committee made up of Abu Dhabi Municipalities & Agriculture, Mubadala Development Company and the Environmental Department. The committee’s consultant is Germany’s Fichtner.
