Clean Tirana, today action in all 27 Units, Veliaj: Municipality, service for taking old furniture

Clean Tirana, today action in all 27 Units, Veliaj: Municipality, service for

All of Tirana is involved today in a voluntary cleaning action, in all its 27 Administrative Units. Tirana Municipality enterprises, volunteers from the capital's schools and citizens, have joined the call to clean their unit, neighborhood or building.

Even the mayor Erion Veliaj became part of this action on the Ndroq-Plepa national road, accompanied by volunteer students from the schools "Ismail Qemali", "Sami Frashëri" and "Eqerem Çabej". He thanked all those who answered the call and underlined that today Tirana is cleaned 2-3 times a day, but due to the increase in the number of tourists and high consumption, it may go to a more frequent regime. Veliaj added that it is important that, in addition to the daily work that cleaning companies do, such actions affect keeping the city clean, especially now on the eve of the summer holidays.

"I thank all the citizens who joined the action, but especially the young people, in all 27 Units of Tirana. In July-August, vacations begin, which means that the volume of waste in Tirana increases because there will be more tourists. If the figures continue like those at the beginning of the year and we reach 14-15 million tourists, it means that on average in Tirana we will have 1 million additional citizens every month, apart from residents. So, the volume of cleaning will also increase, but we will also have to increase the volume of culture and cleanliness that everyone keeps for themselves", said Veliaj.

The Mayor asked the citizens of Tirana to keep the environment where they live clean, because according to him, only in this way will we have a clean city, despite the influx of tourists.

"There are many tourists who come from other countries, who do not practice throwing waste in the bin, but leave it in black bags at the door. These bags stay on the ground for hours and become problematic for street animals. For this reason, I ask the citizens of Tirana that, if someone has come to host with Airbnb in their apartment, let them know that we take the bags to the bin. Today Tirana has a volume of cleaning 2-3 times a day, but maybe we will go to a more frequent regime. But if someone doesn't even clean their shop or their street, that requires some mentality. If you go to everyone's house, everyone keeps it clean. We would like that cleanliness to be at the doorstep. Today we are at a moment when we are proud of the national team and we say 'how nice to be Albanian', but we should also say 'how nice to be clean', because part of Albanianness and our culture must definitely be purity. Today, the patriotic gesture is to keep clean, starting from your door, your yard, from your doorstep, and then helping with voluntary campaigns, as the wonderful young people of Tirana are doing today", said Veliaj.

In the end, the mayor said that an ecological island will be created in Tirana, so that residents who change their household furniture, do not leave it in the middle of the road.

"In Tirana, we will create a point that will be called an ecological island, where citizens can bring their own hygiene and sanitation and not leave them at the door of the building. Very soon we will also publish a unique number, where the service of taking old furniture or rugs will be carried out by the Municipality of Tirana, against a modest payment, in order not to leave them under the building. To win the battle for sustainable tourism, they must find us clean. It would be unforgivable if all the tourists we are expecting this summer come and find a polluted Tirana. We will do our best, but everyone has to do their own thing", concluded Veliaj.

The action for the cleaning of Tirana in one day is being carried out in all the administrative units of the capital, to welcome the tourists as befits the Albanians, but also to have an environment as clean as possible.
