The municipality of Borama in Somalia's Awdal region is mounting a garbage collection campaign as the region nears its rainy season.

The campaign began in some parts of the city on Thursday (March 21st), and will continue in a citywide effort to prevent waterways from clogging with garbage, which can lead to illness, according to Borama municipal council Mohamed Abdi Hashi.

"We have implemented it in the Sheikh Ali Jawhar neighbourhood, particularly in waterways, pipes and unlawful garbage dumping sites that are inappropriate for garbage disposal, such as in the middle of neighbourhoods," he told Sabahi.

"We collect the garbage in two ways -- a daily collection and a weekly one conducted in one neighbourhood a week," he said. "Garbage [collection] is continuous work because it is something that is generated every minute."

Next week, the sanitation campaign will expand to Borama's Fardaha neighbourhood, Mayor Saleban Hassan Haddi said.
