This is in addition to producing more than 1 million tons of various sized gravel by recycling demolition and construction waste, and producing around 26,000 tonnes of rubber products resulting from recycling tires – all as part of the centre's efforts to achieve sustainability.

The centre recycled products amounting to 23% of the total waste collected in the specialised facilities during the first half of 2022.
As part of Tadweer's efforts to recycle and treat waste, recycled gravel was used in vital national projects such as road pavements, and different rubber products were used as safety floors and rubber tiles for sidewalks in several sectors, including the public, the education, and sport sector.
