DUBAI, July 22 -- City Waste 2009 is an inaugural four-day event that will take
place from 11-14 October 2009. The Middle East’s rapid growth over the
past years has brought about significant waste management challenges to the
region. In response to these challenges, IQPC have developed City Waste 2009 as
a platform to discuss and share strategies on the increasing quantities of
generated waste as well as the need for innovative waste management solutions.

The event will be officially inaugurated by the UAE Minister for Environment
Water, H.E. Dr. Rashid Ahmad Bin Fahad, on the first day of the main conference,
Monday 12 October 2009.

Eng. Hassan Mohammed Makki, Director of Waste Management Department, Dubai
Municipality, will provide a keynote presentation on strategic insights into the
Clean Up the World Campaign. He will reveal new waste systems and upcoming green
technologies that are being utilised by the municipality, such as vacuum waste
collection systems, underground storage facilities, and underground compactors
for commercial districts.

City Waste 2009 will feature speakers from Dubai Municipality, Abu Dhabi
Municipality, The Government of Ajman, the Arab Urban Development Institute and
Institution of Civil Engineers UK. They will be joined on the agenda by a host
of international waste experts from the private sector.

Commenting on the summit, Mark Siddorn, Director - Environmental and Waste
Management, Tatweer Real Estate Zoning (TREZ), states This inaugural event will
be an excellent tool for the Gulf region. City Waste 2009 covers interesting and
