Jubail starts registering traffic offenses for littering streets

The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu (RCJY), as represented by the Industrial Safety Department and in cooperation with the Hygiene Department, has begun to register traffic violations for persons throwing waste from vehicles, according to the 4th set of traffic fines and sanctions law.
Mahdi Al-Harshan, director of the hygiene department at the RCJY, said that the application of fines is intended to promote awareness among vehicle users about the importance of maintaining the cleanliness of Jubail Industrial City.
He said that throwing waste from vehicles is an uncivilized behavior. Jubail Industrial City is a unique model characterized by its cleanliness of roads and utilities.
Al-Harshan said, “Everyone should contribute in spreading awareness, rejecting non-civilized behaviors, and working to keep the city clean and free of waste.”
Hygiene in Jubail Industrial City is one of the priorities of the commission. Indeed, all members of the hygiene management are working well to keep neighborhoods and streets clean.
The department has recently launched a new, free service for residents to enable them getting rid of large waste via a phone call.
This service enables people to get rid of large electrical appliances and furniture of all sizes. The user can contact the department on 358-4200 to determine the appropriate time to take the waste.
