The production of approximately 7.35 million tonnes of waste by the Emirate’s construction industry is considered as a sign of escalating investment Dubai’s real estate sector is obtaining. This boost points out the progress of the economic condition and the increased confidence and trust in the real estate sector during this period.

According to the figures the municipality released, 72% of the total waste collected from the city last year accounts to construction waste. In order to deal with the construction waste for the year 2014, an outlay amounting to more or less AED8.5 million is required.
