Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) officially started the campaign to remove abandoned vehicles within Al Daayan Municipality to enforce Law No 18 of 2017 on Public Hygiene. The campaign was implemented by the Committee for removing abandoned vehicles and the MME Department of Mechanical Equipment in co-operation with Al Daayan Municipality.

The department assistant director and committee member Marzoq Mubarak al-Misifri, the General Cleaning Department assistant director and committee member Mohamed Faraj al-Kubaisi, the Municipal Control Department director Abdullah al-Nuaimi, Al Daayan Municipality’s General Control Section head Ali al-Humaidi, a number of representatives concerned at the Ministry of Interior and the Internal Security Forces (Lekhwiya) attended.

The campaign to remove abandoned vehicles across the country started in Doha city by the end of June then moved to Al Sheehaniyah and is now targeting the jurisdiction of Al Daayan.

A total of 5200 vehicles have been removed from municipalities across the country since the start of 2019 and 1200 have been removed since the campaign started. Almost 200 abandoned vehicles were spotted within the first of this campaign.

Warning stickers are placed on the abandoned vehicles and owners are given three days to remove them before the committee does the same.

Since the establishment of the joint committee in 2013, 61,524 vehicles have been removed, 43,202 of these were placed in Al Masha impound ground and the rest at Abu Hamour. MME has opened a new site for impounding abandoned vehicles at Al Mazrouah Area within Umm Salal Municipality, which accommodates up to 25,000 vehicles, in addition to the existing two other locations at Al Mashaf and Mesaimeer.
