Blue Stream Environmental LLC has sold 850 waste receptacles to terminal 3 of the Dubai International Airport with more receptacles remaining to be supplied to the other two terminals. The waste receptacles called S.S Taurus bins were specially designed according to specifications laid down by the Engineering Projects Division of the Dubai Civil Aviation.
