Department of Sanitation

The Municipality of Aradippou, in the context of its efforts to upgrade the quality of life of its citizens and improve the good image of the Municipality, gives special importance to the area of cleanliness.
That is why the Cleaning Department of the Municipality tries every day with all the means at its disposal, human resources and mechanical equipment, to achieve the above goal. However, in order for him to succeed, not only his own effort is sufficient, but the cooperation of the citizens is also necessary.
The main activities of the Cleaning Department are the following:

How often are streets and public spaces cleaned?

The Municipality has established a weekly cleaning program for its streets and public spaces, such as squares, areas around churches, schools, the Municipal Hall, the Municipal Stadium, etc.

What is the capacity available to the Municipality for this service?

For the above purposes, one mechanical sweeper and four street sweepers are used.

What are our obligations as citizens?

Citizens must protect the environment, in which they live, from useless objects and impurities.
I can contact the Municipality for emergency cases of nuisance related to cleaning issues (eg weather phenomena, events, etc.)

Who is responsible for cleaning the plots and open spaces?

It is the responsibility of the owner to clear the plots and open spaces of weeds and other useless objects.

Can the Municipality assist in the cleaning of plots and open spaces if the owner is unable (e.g. due to age, disability, etc.)?

The Municipality, with publications in the daily press, reminds and invites the owners of the plots to proceed with the cleaning of the above areas by the end of each April. In cases where the owners do not respond, the Municipality cleans the plots and calls on the owner to pay the relevant costs.

Is there a cost for the Municipality’s assistance in cleaning? If so, what is it?

The cost for the municipality’s assistance in cleaning a plot, field or open space is determined by the size of the piece and by the type of work performed.
• Excavator / Truck: For example, for 500 sqm it will cost €65, or for 250 sqm it will cost €35
• Hydraulic grass shredder with arm: For example, for 500m2 it will cost €40, or for 250m2 it will cost €20
