The Centre’s participation in the festival comes in line with its objectives to raise awareness about its services, maintain the Festival’s cleanliness and control public health pests during the event.
The Festival is held under the patronage of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and under the guidance of H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Presidential Court.
The Festival which is one of the most significant annual events, reflects the great efforts of the founding father of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to preserve the deep-rooted Emirati heritage, traditions, and customs.
Dr. Salem Khalfan Al Kaabi, Acting Director-General of Tadweer, said, “We are honoured to be the strategic sponsor of the Sheikh Zayed Festival, which has a regional and international significance. The festival sheds light on the cultural and civilized heritage of the UAE, a key pillar to the country’s journey towards excellence and prosperity.”
“The Centre’s participation as a strategic sponsor and partner comes as part of its commitment to support national activities and its corporate social responsibility to raise the public’s awareness on the importance of maintaining a healthy and clean environment in Abu Dhabi,” he added.
Throughout the festival, the Centre will offer waste collection, transport and pest control services, by providing 297 advanced equipment and vehicles, as well as around 255 containers with modern designs.
Additionally, the centre will arrange manual and automatic sweeping services on the main roads and the roads leading to the site. Specialized work teams comprised of around 150 workers from the Centre will maintain the site’s cleanliness before, during, and after the festival.
The Centre will also carry out specialised operations for controlling pests and insects such as flies, mosquitoes, rodents, etc., in addition to preventative measures to limit them from proliferating, by focusing its efforts on the vital areas in the site.
