A total of 120 Transguard employees spent part of the past weekend cleaning the Al Mamzar beach.
Volunteers collected 191 bags of rubbish from Al Mamzar Park near the border of Sharjah.
Greg Ward, managing director, Transguard said: “Working with Dubai Municipality on this project is a great way to show our commitment to continually improving the city where we live and work.”
Organised in conjunction with the Waste Management Department and the Department of Public Parks & Recreational Facilities of Dubai Municipality, the staff collected everything from cigarette ends to disposable barbeque grills during their three hour effort in Al Mamzar Beach Park.
Prizes were also given to the team that collected the most trash.
Along with the junior team members Transguard’s directors and heads of department also participated in the CSR activity.
Transguard’s Al Mamzar Beach clean-up is the latest in the company’s CSR activities: In 2018 the its efforts resulted in a savings of more than 2.2 million litres of water, the recycling of nearly four tonnes of paper and 47 tonnes of plastic and the organisation of more than 2,300 events at staff accommodations.
