(MENAFN - Arab News) The Al-Ahsa Municipality and Saudi Aramco launched an awareness campaign, titled "garbage-free roads" with the aim to organize the disposal of debris from buildings being torn down for new construction or for new building projects. The campaign's focus is to protect the environment and prevent visual pollution.



Deputy Mayor of Al-Ahsa for Municipality Services Abdullah Al-Arfaj said in his opening speech, "Islam encourages us to take care of the environment," adding that the Al-Ahsa region is witnessing an increased interest in environment issues and its protection from pollution



"Since the environment is paramount to a long and healthy existence, all sectors from different fields and specialties should raise environmental awareness in people from different backgrounds by organizing programs, implementing mechanisms and doing voluntary and educational work to preserve the environment," he said



The urban growth and infrastructural development in Al-Ahsa is witnessing an increase in the volume of debris from construction works which the municipality plans to recycle and use in different projects. "This will result in a safe disposal of the waste as well as protect the environment and the landscape," Al-Arfaj said


The awareness and educational campaign will cement the mutual strategies of Al-Ahsa Municipality and Saudi Aramco for a cleaner environment, he added. Al-Arfaj hoped that everyone would cooperate and assume their responsibilities to preserve the environment by refraining from throwing waste randomly



Director of Uthmaniyah gas plant at Saudi Aramco Abdulkareem Al-Ghamdi said, "The campaign will last 10 days and is part of Saudi Aramco's responsibilities toward society which is cooperating with the Al-Ahsa Municipality for a pollution-free environment."



Al-Ghamdi said that the campaign also aims to raise the environmental awareness among contractors to show them the importance of responsible disposal of waste.



"The focus will be on educating workers and their supervisors at three main locations which include the Municipality's and Saudi Aramco's waste disposal sites," he said adding that the process of disposing waste will be supervised and new sites for waste disposal will be marked to hold the increasing volume of debris



Yassir Al-Omair an Aramco engineer said that buses for the campaign will be dispatched to various locations to promote the joint environmental awareness program of Aramco and Al-Ahsa Municipality
