Field teams to clean Jabal Al-Noor
The municipality of the holy city has deployed a number of field teams to clean the Jabal (mountain) Al-Noor, which is one of the religious and historic areas pilgrims usually prefer to visit when they come to do Haj.
Assistant mayor for services, Abdul Salam Bin Solaiman Al-Mashshat, said the municipality has doubled its cleaning and environmental correction efforts in all areas these days using modern vacuum cleaners and solar garbage bins in addition to golf cars and other equipment.
“The municipality has deployed more than 8,500 cleaners to work in Makkah during the Haj season,” he said.
Director general of the municipality’s department of cleaning Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al-Morqi said the municipality has deployed a number of teams to do manual and electric cleansing of Jabal Al-Noor and the surrounding areas.
“We are using garbage trucks of various sizes to collect the garbage and dump it outside the holy city,” he added.
