Kuwait municipality trims public cleaning contracts to $408m.

Kuwait Municipality announced that it has signed new contracts worth $408m (KD124m) for parking lot and street cleaning services, which is approximately $528m (KD160m) less than previous deals.

According to a Kuwait News Agency (Kuna) report, the municipality reiterated its commitment to preserving public funds by reducing the cost of contracts, and commended the efforts of teams who keep country’s streets clean.

The municipality also emphasised that it will levy fines on any cleaning company that is found to be negligent or is flouting national laws, highlighting that the new contracts do not encompass commercial areas, as shopkeepers deal with private suppliers of janitorial services.
