They either accumulate directly using their logistics or indirectly through using private waste management companies.

It has a scrap processing yard in Doha’s industrial area where they process scrap. They also have a recycling scrap accumulating system in certain residential areas where they place bins for registered customers. The customers put their used appliances in the bins, and Seashore Recycling Centre collects them twice a month.
At the scrap processing yard, the used appliances go through the separation from waste items. If you have more appliances to get rid of, they will collect from your residence. The metal parts are sent to the recycling facility of Seashore Recycling Centre’s and the waste is disposed of.
