Daraa - SMART

The sanitation workers in the Local Council of Seida, Southern Syria (10km east of Daraa) throw garbage in front of the shops in the city, after the owners refused to pay the cleaning fees.

“The workers acted individually, after the owners refused more than once to pay the fees, using barbaric words,” said Mohamed Nour Ghazi, the president of the council. Then he added that the local council started collecting the fees six months ago to cover the expenses. The cleaning fees are 1,000 SYP for each household and shop, with consideration for the special cases. About 700 households and shops are committed to paying the fee, whereas the same number are not, and the council did not interfere with them.

Ghazi pointed out that the collected money, estimated at 700,000 SYP a month, goes to the local council in the city, and “it barely covers the expenses of the wages, purchasing diesel and oil for the trucks as well as maintenance expenses.”

The council’s president stressed the need for the organizations’ help with the sanitation department, especially that Seida is considered the most populated town that is out of the regime’s control.

In may, 2017, the local council asked the displaced people, who live in the town, to vacate the houses within 72 hours and to go back to their regions, to make space for the newcomers from Eastern Daraa.
