The Ministry of Municipalities and Environment, represented by the General Cleanliness Department, has called on citizens and expatriates to stop littering and place garbage especially the construction and solid wastes at designated places.

The disposal of the waste in proper way eases the job of cleaning team which takes the garbage to the designated sites. The department removed over 2,025 tonnes of waste in January under an intensified operation conducted by the Department last month in Doha and Al Rayyan area to remove the wastes that were thrown randomly.

Large quantity of construction and miscellaneous waste were dumped randomly in Doha, Al Rayyan and Sheehaniya. The Department removed 1,530 tonnes of waste from Doha, 300 tonnes from Shihaniya and 195 tonnes from Al Rayyan. The cleaning campaigns were launched within the framework of the programme implemented by the Ministry to clean throughout the country by removing waste, especially those came from anonymous source and thrown randomly. Such cleaning campaigns do not affect routine cleaning operation.
