Going Green

As a leading Waste Management company in the country, we see the push for recycling, firstly as our national duty to protect Bahrain’s environment and secondly as our humanitarian duty to protect the planet’s environment.

NIDUKKI started its recycling operations in November 2011 with a facility operational space of approximately 2500 m2. We are capable of tackling all pre- segregated recyclable waste. Our recycling operations provide two main advantages to our customers. It assists them with their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) commitment through contributing to the protection of Bahrain’s environment and it reduces their waste collection expenses.

Since the inception of our recycling division, we have been a contributing force to protecting our country’s environment. By doing so, we have also assisted our existing and new customers in diverting tons of recyclable waste away from landfill. By recycling all that material we have also saved tons of natural resources from being used as virgin material
