Thousands of workers assigned

All 10 Eid musallahs in the emirate have been cleaned ahead of the special prayers that will be offered on the first day of the festival. The Dubai Municipality distributed 45 waste storage facilities and additional waste baskets near mosques and Eid event venues to cover emergency cases and the most crowded areas.

The civic body has assigned about 2,250 cleaners, including 426 from the private sector; over 250 supervisory and monitoring employees; and 747 equipment and vehicles.

It also assigned a team of 73 workers to ensure the cleanliness of beaches. They will work around the clock in three shifts to clean 22km of public beaches. About 57 cleaners and five supervisors will cover a total of 2,300km of major highways.

Food safety monitoring

The civic body has launched multiple campaigns to guarantee that food establishments comply with regulations for transporting, storing, preparing, and exhibiting food products and materials. Officials have inspected food establishments, hypermarkets, sweet shops, chocolate shops, and stores selling popular and Arabic sweets, following the increased demand for these items during Eid.

Dubai Municipality teams will continue to inspect sales outlets, consumer complexes and hypermarkets, the Central Fruits and Vegetables Market, and the Waterfront Market to ensure the safety of fresh food products.


Abattoirs will operate from 7am to 2pm during the Eid holidays. The municipality has conducted awareness campaigns to educate community members about the risks of slaughtering animals outside the designated abattoirs.
