The Unsung City Cleaning Heroes Awards will be held for the third time this November, and promises to be bigger and better!
The awards were instituted in 2015 to recognise the dedicated services provided by the outdoor cleaning and waste management staff in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The workers, nominated by the respective municipalities and waste management authorities, receive a cash prize and a certificate of appreciation.
In 2015, six best outdoor cleaning and waste management staff from Sharjah and Dubai were rewarded for their hard work. In 2016, these awards were extended to other emirates, and a total of 13 workers from Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah were honoured in the presence of high level officials and representatives from the industry.
