The world’s largest automatic waste collection system is being built by MariMatic in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, where during Ramadan and Hajj, 600 tons of waste are generated daily by 2 million people. Using the MetroTaifun® System, waste is collected from 359 waste inlet points, then transferred via a 37-kilometre pipe network to a Central Utility Complex. The project started in 2011 and the system will be built according to the regional development schedule of the area.
In 2020, MariMatic has signed a new agreement with Saudi Bin Ladin Group (SBG) to expand the mosque system to an area called Mataf.
