The Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) has made a monumental stride towards sustainable waste management by officially inking a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Investment Recycling Company (SIRC). This transformative agreement encompasses the handling and processing of all waste within the jurisdiction of DGDA. Beyond waste management, the MoU paves the way for future collaborations between DGDA and SIRC, spanning research, investment endeavors, solution implementation, operational strategies, and comprehensive management practices.
Jerry Inzerillo, the Chief Executive Officer of DGDA, and Eng Ziyad bin Mohammed Al-Shiha, his counterpart at SIRC, jointly signed the MoU, signifying the beginning of an impactful partnership. Advancing Environmental Sustainability Under the umbrella of this strategic MoU, DGDA and SIRC are poised to coalesce their efforts in devising citywide waste management solutions that align with internationally acclaimed practices. These practices encompass the handling, recycling, and disposal of diverse waste streams. Empowered by cutting-edge and efficient technologies, the collaboration will encompass technical studies, investigative research, and knowledge-sharing workshops.
Inzerillo underscored that the collaboration with SIRC mirrors DGDA's steadfast commitment to achieving environmental sustainability. It also seeks to optimize returns on investment within the waste management domain while diligently safeguarding the quality-of-life standards outlined in Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030. This initiative holds profound significance, particularly given Diriyah's historical prominence as the birthplace of the First Saudi State and its designation as the Arab Capital of Culture for 2030.
