For many years, the cleaning policy applied in Athens did not have the expected results. Any cleaning intervention was piecemeal and limited to the center points.
The current municipal authority, from the very first moment, raised the issue of cleanliness "high" on its agenda. Athens is not only Syntagma and Omonia, it is also its 129 neighborhoods. With this as a given, the strategy of the municipal authority for the cleaning sector is extended to every part of the capital, with the sole aim of upgrading the quality of life of the inhabitants and to return to the neighborhoods the "culture" of everyday life.
Small and large streets, sidewalks and squares are cleaned with hot soapy water, the sidewalks are brushed, while at the same time the urban equipment is maintained, so that it is always functional and serves residents and visitors.
These actions at all levels, are implemented daily and culminate every Sunday, where the soul of the municipality, fully equipped with the assistance of modern equipment, carries out a large cleaning-disinfection operation, each time in a new part of the city.
Last Sunday, the people of the cleaning department of the Municipality of Athens, were in the area of Neos Kosmos. They "scanned" roads that on weekdays the heavy traffic does not allow interventions like today, while they carried out the necessary disinfections due to the pandemic.
The "present" in this big Sunday action was given by a total of 20 employees, while their work was strengthened with cleaning machines (aquifers, washers and sweepers), of all sizes, which operated in all open public spaces.
According to the schedule, this Sunday the cleaning crews of the Municipality of Athens will be located in Polygono.
