MWAN Introduces Strategies for Sustainable Trash Management in Preparation for Hajj

The National Center for Waste Management, or MWAN, of Saudi Arabia has launched programs to give pilgrims a clean and healthy environment throughout the Hajj season.

A center representative, Sultan Al-Harthi, told Arab News that the programs are a part of an attempt to control and enhance waste management during the Hajj season in order to protect the environment for coming generations.

Al-Harthi stated that one of them is a device that, during the recycling process, converts food waste into fertilizer that is first utilized inside of places of worship without producing any emissions or smells.

He said that pilgrims are taught the value of recycling and environmental preservation through the “Sustainable Ihram” campaign. Its foundation is the gathering and sorting of textile waste from pilgrims—including ihrams, pillows, blankets, and mattresses—before their recycling and distribution. Pilgrims will be able to donate their clothing to containers that will be placed at Makkah’s Mina camps and hotels.

The institution anticipates that in collaboration with the appropriate authorities, about 300,000 pillows and 50 tonnes of ihrams will be gathered. Al-Harthi stated that an outreach team is visiting the Mina camps to make sure the effort is ready.
