Dubai Municipality cleared 87 tonnes of waste after the New Year Eve celebrations across various locations in Dubai.
The authority said the waste was cleared in record time by a team of more than 1,800 people.
Talib Julfar, CEO of Dubai Municipality for Infrastructure Services Sector, said: “The Municipality had prepared an integrated plan to secure the sites of celebrations, festivals and sports and tourism events for the cleaning and removal of waste from the New Year celebrations as Burj Khalifa, Business Bay, the beaches extending from Jumeirah Beach to Dubai Marina and Burj Al Arab, as well as Sheikh Zayed Road, Downtown Dubai and Dubai Water Canal had become the focus of the world’s attention.”
A team of 1,802 workers and volunteers worked on the clean-up, in addition to distributing 200 additional waste containers of different sizes in more crowded areas.
The cleaning operation, which continued from 55 pm to 6 am the following day, was completed before 88 am said Abdulmajeed Saifaie, director of the Waste Management Department.
