Dubai, April 19, 2023:  Dubai Municipality has completed its preparations to ensure a safe and enjoyable Eid Al-Fitr celebration across the Emirate; by taking several measures to promote food safety and public health, as well as the cleanliness of public facilities and roads.
The preparations include equipping inspection teams and intensifying the efforts of supervisory and field teams to enhance the cleanliness of roads and public facilities. The municipality has also identified key facilities and parks where entertainment events and shows will be held, along with their corresponding schedules.
This comes in line with Dubai Municipality's vision to establish the Emirate as a sustainable, inviting, and livable city by delivering exceptional services and enhancing the quality of life for both residents and visitors of Dubai. This entails planning, managing, and ensuring the city's sustainability, as well as providing innovative municipal services that promote the well-being and happiness of people in line with the Emirate of Dubai's objectives.
Food safety monitoring
In preparation for the Eid holidays, Dubai Municipality has launched various campaigns to guarantee that food establishments comply with regulations for transporting, storing, preparing, and exhibiting food products and materials. These efforts aim to ensure the safety of the most frequently traded food items during the holidays and to provide optimal health and safety standards that enhance the quality of life in the Emirate of Dubai.
The food inspection teams conducted inspections on food establishments, hypermarkets, sweet shops, chocolate shops, and stores selling popular and Arabic sweets, following the increased demand for these items during Eid. The objective was to enforce best practices that prevent contamination of these products, particularly cross-contamination resulting from improper separation of raw meat from cooked or ready-to-eat food. Additionally, the teams monitored the degree to which food establishment workers adhered to strict standards of personal hygiene to safeguard the overall health of consumers.
Dubai Municipality teams will continue to inspect sales outlets, consumer complexes and hypermarkets, the Central Fruits and Vegetables Market, and the Waterfront Market to ensure the safety of fresh food products.
The Municipality has set operating hours for its abattoirs from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM during Eid holidays. Furthermore, the Municipality also conducted awareness campaigns to educate community members about the dangers/risks of slaughtering animals outside the designated abattoirs and emphasized the importance of avoiding itinerant butchers or indiscriminate slaughter due to the potential risks they pose to public health and the environment.
City cleanliness
Dubai Municipality has implemented comprehensive programs and technical and field work plans to enhance public hygiene and community services related to sustainable waste management during Eid Al-Fitr. These measures ensure the delivery of top-notch logistics services and the use of effective waste storage methods. Additionally, the Municipality has increased its efforts in transporting and unloading waste containers to manage waste operations and provide integrated and efficient municipal services that maintain the safety and cleanliness of the city.
As part of its procedures to enhance the cleanliness of public facilities, Dubai Municipality teams carried out cleaning operations for all 10 Eid Musallas in the Emirate and distributed 45 waste storage facilities and additional waste baskets near mosques and Eid event venues to cover emergency cases and the most crowded areas.
The Municipality has assigned about 2,250 cleaners, including 426 workers from the private sector, over 250 supervisory and monitoring employees, 747 equipment and vehicles. This includes 307 heavy vehicles, 214 light vehicles, 120 rental vehicles as well as 76 heavy equipment attached to cleaning boats, and 30 light equipment. They will be available around the clock to execute routine field programs and provide support and emergency services.
It also assigned a team to ensure the cleanliness of the beaches of the Emirate of Dubai, consisting of 73 cleaners, who will work round-the-clock in three shifts to ensure the cleanliness of 22 km of public beaches. Additionally, a specialized team equipped with the latest boats and equipment has been formed to monitor the cleanliness of Dubai Creek and water channels. Furthermore, a workforce of 57 cleaners and 5 supervisors has been set up for the initial days of Eid Al-Fitr. They will cover a total of 2,300 km of major highways.
