Abbasiya Garbage problem will soon be solved: Municipality Chief Badar Al Qattan



Latest News

The garbage problem in Abbasiya has come to the notice of the authorities and necessary steps are being taken by the Municipality Cleaning Department, said Farwaniya Governorate Municipality cleaning department head Badar Salih Al Qattan.

He was replying to the petition submitted by Youth India regarding the garbage problem in Abbasiya. Youth India brought to the authority’s notice that garbage was piling up in all parts of Abbasiya and it was causing serious health hazards. The new contracting company has not started garbage collection in full swing. People have started feeling the itch and children have started to have skin irritations. And an unexpected rain made the problem worse. The people are not able to even go out. Garbage from some areas have been collected and dumped in a different area. Most of the areas in Abbasiya which are densely populated do not have enough garbage boxes. So the available boxes are overflowing. Youth India leaders informed the authorities.

Cleaning has started in different areas using Bull dozers and tipper lorries and every day, the activities are being monitored by the cleaning department manager himself, Badar Salih Al Qattan said. All necessary steps are being taken to rapidly solve the garbage problem. More boxes will be immediately installed wherever necessary. Necessary instructions will go out to the cleaning company, he said.



Al Qattan also advised the steps necessary to be taken by the residents and it can be expedited faster by the co-operation of the residents. The garbage is collected between 6pm and 12am by the garbage trucks. The garbage should be dumped in the designated boxes and in time for the collection. Vehicles should not be parked in a way that obstructs the collection of the garbage boxes. Garbage should not be dumped outside the boxes too, he advised.

The garbage should be dumped in plastic bags. In case, enough boxes are not available the residents can contact the following number in their respective areas Khaitan - 24768714, 24710579, Farwaniya -24761902 , Riggae -24893319, 24893698 , Jleeb-24335435 and inform the block, street and road number, and the boxes will immediately be made available. In addition, any complaints regarding garbage collection can be intimated on the hotline 139, which is operational 24/7
