"Let's Keep Al Ain Clean"



"Let's Keep Al Ain Clean". That is the clean up campaign launched a year ago in the 60 districts of Al Ain and its surrounding areas by the Abu Dhabi-based Center of Waste Management and so far it is doing well.

Lavajet and MBM Dallah are the contractors responsible for the waste collection, transportation and cleaning services in the north and south zone of Al Ain City. There are 26 districts in the north zone and  34 districts in the south zone. Lavajet is responsible for the north zone and MBM-Dallah is responsible for the south zone. 

Photos shown above are the trash bins/cans provided by the cleaning companies. Residents are requested to abide by the waste collection timing set by the government. Waste are collected on a daily basis between 06:00 AM and  08:00 PM and fines are imposed against the people who dump trash on the roads. At present it is AED250 and there is a proposal to increase it to AED500. In our community alone, as per my observation, trash bins/cans are available in every block and each street has more than 10 trash bins.

Word of the day: Kashara or katshara is the arabic term for rubbish. Salaam!

  5. What a nice and important subject. With nearly a week of strike, and trash containers "running over" very much appreciated.
    Usually they collect it during the night, over here, they pass my house at 03.15 - nearly every night at the same minute.
    Please have a wonderful Wednesday.

  7. Naqvee,

    Hey missy, how are you? I hope everything is well with you.

    Jo,
    Hi dear. Almost 90% of Al Ain is garbage free.

    arabesque,
    Hi sissy. This is one of the reasons why I like Al Ain. Sana ganyan rin sa Pinas.

    @blue,

    Hi sis. Sana nga ganyan din sa Pinas. Actually kulang lang ng disiplina ang mga tao sa Pinas maliban pa sa kakulangan ng mga basurahan na ipinoprovide ng government natin.

    Dito yung waste segregation ay hindi pa naiimplement though sa mga hospitals at mga companies eh meron na. Hopefully pati sa mga common household ay maipatupad.

  8. Rob and Mandy,
    indeed! thanks for dropping by.

    Robert,
    I hope and pray that the strike in Athens will end up soon. Waste collection in your place is kinda different. You mean 03:15 Am?

    Cloudia,
    Indeed! Thanks for dropping by. Aloha my friend.

    Betty,
    Yes. Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful day my dear.

    @ All,

    Thank you for stopping by. Each and everyone of you are greatly appreciated. Please excuse me for not returning the visits often. My schedule is too hectic and most of the time my entries are scheduled one. Am doing it whenever I am free to do so.

    Have a wonderful day to all of you.
