Post-Eid Al-Adha celebrations

Said Sadiq district struggles with trash overflow

SAID SADIQ — Residents of the Said Sadiq district in Sulaymaniyah are calling for immediate action following the accumulation of large amounts of trash after Eid Al-Adha celebrations. Locals report unpleasant odors emanating from overflowing garbage bins that have become a major concern in several neighborhoods.

Osman Mohammed, a resident of the Sheikhani neighborhood, expressed his frustration to 964media. “The garbage in our neighborhood was not collected a day before Eid Al-Adha, leading to overflowing bins and spreading foul smells. We urge for it to be cleared promptly,” Mohammed said.

Hemin Ahmed, a supervisor at the Gardin cleaning company, which is responsible for cleanup in the district, acknowledged the issue. “We started our operations on the second day of Eid and have been collecting trash. However, two neighborhoods have seen an overflow of garbage due to the holiday break for workers, causing the trash to accumulate,” Ahmed told 964media.

Ahmed insisted that ‘comprehensive’ cleaning efforts were underway, promising that trash will be cleaned up by Friday.
