Nestlé are the FIRST bottled drinking water company in KSA to actively seek to take a responsibility for post-consumer plastic (PET) waste and have the future vision to recycle 100% by volume of their yearly production output within KSA.
Post-Consumer Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) amounts to approximately Twenty Million 20,000,000 tons per year in KSA, or 1.72kg of MSW per citizen/resident each day.
Government regulation and intention is to reduce the volume of waste placed in landfill each year through recycling, improved waste management, and waste to energy schemes. Commencing in the central area, one of the primary aims of the program is to achieve the participation of the largest residential compounds in the Riyadh metropolitan area. This will involve approximately 10,000+ housing units and thousands of residents.
