Join O2 in an Environmental Campaign to recycle cans

O2 would like to invite you to join us in a Can Recycling Program. The campaign which began in 1998 encourages companies, schools and individuals across the UAE to recycle cans. To date, they have recycled over 75,450 Kg’s cans.

O2 will be collecting cans next week and will drop them off at one of the designated locations in Dubai on May 29th. We have already notified employees, asking them to bring in cans from home too and to drop them into large cardboard boxes in the office.

We would like to invite you to join us – let’s see how many cans we can recycle!

If this campaign is of interest to your company, please contact Michelle Johns for further information. We can arrange for a driver to come and collect your cans next week and drop them off at the recycling facility.

Other drop off locations in the UAE are;

Sharjah Radisson SAS
Ajman City Centre parking lot
Ras Al Khaimah RAK Free Trade Zone
