The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM), through the Municipality of Madinat Zayed, has launched a campaign – which will run from 15 December, 2019 to 31 January, 2020 – aimed at preserving the general appearance of the Mohammed bin Zayed City by maintaining its cleanliness and enhancing the social responsibility of its community.

According to the Municipality Center of Madinat Zayed, the campaign has succeeded in removing more than 1179.46 tonnes of construction and other waste within the first week of its launch.

The campaign aims to remove all types of distorted waste in the city; improve the city’s urban look in residential areas; create an inventory and define the different types of waste, including quantity and quality; and engage the residents and private sectors in preventing public dumping sites for waste.

The campaign will also educate the residents of Mohammed bin Zayed city on how to notify the municipality about widespread waste sites that could distort the city’s appearance, and could be detrimental to health.

The campaign is being conducted in cooperation with the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer); the General Command of the Abu Dhabi Police; the Desert General Transport and Clearance Group; the Al-Rashed Transport and Clearance Group; the Desert Man General Transport and Contracting Group; and the Ghantoot Group, according to an Arabic-language ADM post on its official Facebook page.
