In a statement, the MME said a number of cleaning workers were honoured in appreciation of their daily efforts in maintaining public cleanliness throughout the country. Some administrative officials of the ministry were present on the occasion.
The MME's General Cleanliness Department also organised a campaign to clean Al Wakra beach in co-operation with talabat. Various kinds of waste were collected and removed during the initiative, the ministry said.

Continuing with its World Cleanup Day celebrations, the MME will Friday launch a competition for the public on social media with the aim of raising awareness about the importance of public hygiene and its role in promoting a healthy lifestyle.
Regarding the campaign to clean Al Wakra Beach, General Cleanliness Department assistant director Mohamed Faraj al-Kubaisi said the initiative came within the framework of the MME's interest in preserving the cleanliness of beaches throughout the country as well as its keenness to participate in World Cleanup Day.
The Day is an occasion to raise awareness among the public about the importance of keeping beaches clean, he added.
