KUWAIT CITY, Dec 24: Director of Cleaning and Road Works Department at the Kuwait Municipality branch in Jahra, Fahad Al-Quraifa has confirmed that the Municipality teams continue to provide logistical support to volunteer teams by supplying the required machines, equipment, cleaning workers and environment-friendly bags to remove waste materials dumped on the beaches, reports Al-Rai daily. Speaking to the daily, Al- Quraifa said the Municipality teams are keen on helping the volunteers in their clean-up drives, especially in places frequented by the public.
