Few months down the line SHAE Recycling Company Ltd was started with the core activity of doing garbage collection for both domestic (household) and commercial business houses, using the back yard of a residential house as it base of operation / office. Due to patience and perseverance the company is now planning to move into a new office space at No 7 Spur Road next to the Lebanese Embassy, with better working tools and a spacious operations works yard.
