New Emergency Hotline Lets Giza Residents Report Illegal Disposal of Construction Debris

And a special clean-up team will be on it in a jiffy.

Debris in Giza

While it might seem like something of a niche problem in the grand scheme of things, illegal dumping of construction debris is rife across much of Egypt and contributes endlessly to the pile up of waste around Cairo’s streets and open spaces.

Governor of Giza Ahmed Rashed, however, has announced the upcoming launch of a new hotline that will allow citizens to report the illegal practice. Any incidents of randomly disposed debris will be dealt with by a special clean-up team, according to Masrawy.

But this is the second stage of the move that Rashed hopes will eliminate the practice. He has also announced that the issue of building permits in Giza will strictly be conditional on presenting a receipt from an authorised disposal site confirming that a booking has been made to dispose of the debris.
