Major clean up by Nicosia council

26 May 2013

The council cleaning department has started a campaign to clean up the many empty plots within its boundaries.

They are using heavy machinery to get rid of dumped rubbish and then remove the tall dry grass which is a fire hazard, particularly in the summer months.

The plan is to cover all areas within the council boundaries, initially focussing on plots near built up areas.

Currently cleaning teams are working in Kucuk Kaymakli, Ortakoy and Metehan. Other regions will then follow.

This major clean-up campaign will reduce the risk of fire and disease from the dumped rubbish.

The council have asked for citizens to keep watch on the cleaned up plots. If there is any more rubbish tipping, they should call LTB Alo 185 to report the offenders.
