Inspection campaign targeted eyesores, abandoned vehicles and illegal waste dumping

Abu Dhabi City Municipality found 1,500 violations across Mussafah.
Abu Dhabi City Municipality found 1,500 violations across Mussafah.

The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) carried out an extensive inspection campaign targeting hairdressing salons, abandoned vehicles, ‘eyesores’ and waste dumping in unassigned locations.

The 10-day campaign covered the entire geographical area of Mussafah and neighbouring areas.

The drive stems from the commitment of the Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport – Abu Dhabi City Municipality to maintain the cleanliness of cities and nurture a safe and healthy environment for all community members.

ADM is also concerned with combating negative practices as they can undermine the infrastructure and distort the urbanised outlook of cities and public facilities.

Ultimately, the municipality intends to foster the sense of social responsibility among community members about the importance of cleaning streets, public and private facilities as well as dumping waste in designated places, it said in a statement.

The campaign resulted in issuing 47 violations relating to dumping waste in unassigned locations, ten violations against barbershops and beauty centres flouting the health specifications and standards.

During the campaign, the municipality issued two violations relating to construction and sewerage, served 687 warnings and issued 86 violations against abandoned vehicles owners.

ADM also reportedly spotted more than 570 different eyesores in the city, where necessary actions are being taken against offenders starting with serving warnings, and eventually resulting in issuing offence tickets followed by the removal of the violation from the site.
