Fine for messing up commercial areas in Deira

Waste management department of Dubai Municipality has launched an awareness campaign aimed at educating individuals and shops in commercial areas in Deira about the penalties for the violations under the Local Order No. 11 of 2003 concerning the wrong practices in public places.

Abdul Majeed Al Saifaie said that according to the local order people or institutions who commit offences such as the throwing wastes, selling or spiting the betel on the road will be penalised in order to protect the public cleanliness and health.

"The penalty will be implemented only after successful execution of awareness programmes designed by the civic body," he said.

In preparation to the implementation of the order, a voluntary team from municipal employees has been formed to take care of awareness activities in the Deira.
