UAE residents can contribute to vital medical treatment, education and research by recycling their used plastic bottles and aluminium cans through the Recapp app.

Recapp, the UAE’s first free-of-charge door-to-door recycling service partnered with Al Ain Water to launch the fundraising campaign during the holy month of Ramadan.

Each time Recapp collects recyclables from a user’s doorstep, points are accumulated based on the weight of the recyclables.

Recapp users will have the option of redeeming their points for a digital charity voucher, and at the end of Ramadan, the vouchers will be converted into a donation to Al Jalila Foundation.

Jérôme Viricel, General Manager of Recapp at Veolia Middle East, said: “Our Ramadan charity campaign is the next step in our mission to empower local communities, enabling residents to recycle for the betterment of their environment while donating to a very worthy cause.”
