Dubai – Dubai Municipality announced on Wednesday that private waste collection vehicles will be employing GPS from 2016. The initiative is taken to reduce improper waste dumping and random disposal of municipal, construction and demolition wastes.

Waste management companies involve in the collection and transportation of municipal solid waste as well as construction and demolition waste.
