DIC recycles over 1,000 pieces of IT hardware
Ongoing DIC environmental campaigns reuse old hardware and collect e-waste for recycling
Dubai Internet City has collected over one thousand pieces of IT equipment as part of its recycling drive.
The ‘DIC Recycle - Reuse' campaign collects a variety of used hardware, including desktops, laptops, printers, monitors and scanners, which is then refurbished and distributed to educational, social and charitable institutions.
The campaign is carried out in association with Dubai Municipality, Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Foundation and Microsoft Middle East.
DIC is also involved in an ‘Envirofone Recycling Drive' developed by Envirofone, which collects e-waste such as old mobile phones, accessories and batteries which are then sent for safe recycling in other countries.
Malek Al Malek, executive director, Dubai Internet City, said: "The large number of equipments collected from DIC's business partners is a strong reflection of the increasing awareness of ‘corporate citizenship' within the community. I believe it is incumbent upon us all to do our part for the environment, regardless of the area of operation of a business.
"At DIC, we are committed to bringing together ICT and sustainability practices while raising awareness on the important steps that individuals and organizations can take to protect our community, their organizations and fellow employees," he added.
