Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad and Minister of Local Development Mahmoud Shaarawy met with Governor of South Sinai Khaled Fouda and members of the National Coalition to discuss the coalition’s proposal regarding the integrated management system for solid waste in South Sinai.
The coalition includes two companies — Bee’ah, which is specialised in the field of environmental services, and Green Planet Management for sustainable environmental solutions.
Fouad confirmed that contracting with the coalition represents a real leap in the integrated waste management system of Sharm El-Sheikh, given that it is set to become a green and sustainable city.
She also stressed the need for the coalition to abide by all the terms and conditions in the contract by ways of collecting and transporting waste from neighborhoods, residences, hotels, streets, beaches, and gardens, and collecting agricultural waste from gardens and hotels, noting the need for the company to take into account the employment of Bedouins and their integration within this system.
Furthermore, the delegation of the coalition affirmed the two companies’ pledge to exert all efforts and provide a distinguished service that suits the city of Sharm El-Sheikh and the acquisition of the modern equipment and trained workers agreed upon in the contract to implement the new waste system.
