Municipality to lead beach clean-up drive in Seeb

18 Jan 2021

Muscat Municipality, in cooperation with the Muscat Gas Company and volunteers, will launch a campaign on Wednesday to clean the beaches of Seeb.

An official at the municipality said the clean-up will begin at 4pm in Sur al Hadid beach, taking into account the COVID-19 precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all participants.

He added that the campaign is part of the ‘Your environment is your responsibility’ initiative. 

The campaign aims to spread community awareness on the importance of effective partnership in preserving the environment, and taking care of natural resources, tourist sites, beaches and public places. 

“The campaign also aims to consolidate the partnership between the municipality and the community, instil a culture of volunteering, and involve community members,” he said.

“The campaign stimulates the community to care about the beaches, and to preserve them in light of the spread of some unacceptable practices.”
