Unsung heroes who keep Dubai clean

No doubt the cleaning staff are the real heroes behind the scene, but seeing the waste on the ground on the new year's eve shows how carefree we are to littering (Video of unsung heroes behind Burj Khalifa NYE fireworks will melt your heart; KT web report, Jan 4). Whenever I go to public places, I always keep an extra plastic bag, in case I couldn't find a garbage bin. I throw all the waste in that bag and once I see a trash can, I simply put the waste bag in there.

*They all deserve a big applause if not tips for their hard work. Well done Dubai workers and volunteers. Your hard work and teamwork is much appreciated. May the good forces be with you all.
