Job Title: Director – Waste Management Services

Prakash Parab has been spearheading the Waste Management Services (WMS) at Dulsco for the past five years.

With a career spanning 23 years, Parab has launched various allied services and waste management-related businesses at Dulsco.

When he took over the WMS business unit, Parab had two main aims: instill a customer-centric approach and encourage environmental sustainability.

Parab’s belief in the former has led to many initiatives, including the launch of a 24-hour toll-free service line 800–WASTE (92783), establishing a new office in Sharjah to reduce customer response time, setting up a dedicated presence in Fujairah, adding value-added services like recycling, sweeping, grease trap cleaning and pest control, and investing in balers, portable compactors and organic waste composters.

Parab has always been passionate about creating widespread awareness about sustainability. Dulsco began to hold educational programmes for organisations and communities on environment sustainability and waste segregation at source.

It introduced the ‘Recycle to Regain’ concept which creates awareness and facilitates door-to-door collection of recyclables such as plastic, paper, cardboard and cans.
