THE British embassy in Doha yesterday began to recycle paper waste, to mark the annual April 22 Earth Day celebration. The embassy has begun working with the Al-Suweidy paper factory, located in the Industrial Area, which can provide businesses with cages for their paper waste and arranges weekly pick-ups. The embassy has been keen to introduce recycling for some time but only became aware of the factory’s existence recently after being informed by a member of the British community in Qatar. Management assistant Mark Cockbill, who has been leading the embassy’s efforts to make itself a greener and cleaner organisation, said, “we are really pleased to be able to dispose of paper rubbish at the new embassy in a sustainable way. The Al-Suweidy paper factory is a great find.” “We are also aware that there are organisations in Doha offering aluminium and plastic recycling facilities and we will be looking into these in the coming months,” he added.
