A team of local and international engineers is guiding the conception, construction and management of an ultra-modern site including the installation of a new waste treatment facility. The team will also lead the deployment of a new organic waste composting centre, sanitary landfill and gas recovery and leachate treatment units.

“The innovations that we are deploying on the site will allow us to reach a waste recovery rate higher than 25 per cent from the second year of the contract. It will also generate electricity and be the first in the region to be energy self-sufficient,” said Averda.

In addition, Averda aims to elevating the awareness benefits of recycling practices and waste management, within and for the community.

The development of the new site is set to meet all global environmental standards and benefit all the local communities. It will also help develop the city of Tangier and boost the local economy.

Since 2012, Averda has operated in Morocco, Casablanca, Rabat, Nodor and Berkane, offering cleaning and waste management services to municipalities and to over 2.6mn residents in Morocco alone.

Averda’s ambition is to deploy and reinforce its services, not only in Morocco but further afield in new geographies. Currently, Averda operates in Gabon, Congo, South Africa, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and Ireland.
