139 Baladiya Hotline Works

Post by Mark

I never got to call the Baladiya hotline about the garbage issue behind my building since mysteriously the garbage was cleaned up and the garbage dumpsters brought back. But, a reader called 139 to complain about the garbage situation near his building and it got sorted out very quickly (picture above).

So if your neihborhood has a garbage problem call the Baladiya on 139 and they’ll get the mess sorted right away. Very impressive.

Thanks Mathai

    the 139 Baladiya hotline number should be distributed by flight crew on all inbound flights to Kuwait. Is the garbage situation nearly half as bad in the poorer of the Kuwaiti suburbs as it is in all expat areas??
    A friend of mine was half-joking, immediately post liberation when he quipped that parts of Salmiya, Farwaniya and Abbasiya have seen a proper cleaning service; is to do with Kuwait considering them not as part of Kuwait but of Iraq :)
    Quite frankly, I have never understood the logic of employing cleaners and janitors with little or no sense of sanitation back in their home countries to do skivvy jobs here. Better have East European cleaners than them lot for whom sanitation and hygiene is an alien concept at best.
    But having said that the municipalities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, last I noticed, had cleaners from the subcontinent and not Albanians or Poles. Come to think of it, knowing them- the leadership in the Emirates would be mighty pleased having good looking janitors working in their countries:)

    Remember the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi are spotlessly clean because of janitors from the subcontinent; not inspite of them.
    You need to tweak the top and middle layers of management at cleaning contractors or preferably, get rid of cleaning contractors altogether and have dedicated cleaning staff working for the municipality for a cleaner, neater looking Kuwait. What a shame! Such a wealthy country and the amount of refuse strewn all over the place is enough to make your squirm in your seat.
    Wonder do they ever discuss cleanliness and street hygiene in the parliament?

    well the people living in that area should share the blame, if they packed and left their garbage in proper garbage bags this wouldn’t happen

    It takes time and total dedication of the authority to improve the cleanliness of a city. Proper planning & execution are very important too.

    1- People should not litter in the first place. There are bins everywhere for them to throw their garbage. It’s a problem when the cleaning companies don’t pick the trash from the PROPER allocated area.

    2- Now what’s a better solution than cleaning companies being contracted by municipality? Well, since there is a Coop in every neighbourhood, the cleaning should be decentralised and have the Coop management contract a cleaning company for the neighbourhood under it’s jurisdiction. Baladiya will be responsible for Kuwait City and Roads.
