Post-Shabbat cleaning

Starting next week, Jerusalem will be cleaner. The city has decided to deploy Saturday-night sanitation teams for the first time. The cleaning squads will initially be assigned to Neve Yaakov, Har Homa, Rehes Shlomo and Har Nof – four primarily haredi neighborhoods. 
The launch takes place as a new sanitation director takes office, who, unlike his predecessor, is a resident of the city.
The post-Shabbat cleaning initiative is part of a larger program for additional cleaning shifts. This pilot is planned to run for three months and then expand to additional neighborhoods. 
In addition, as of next week and until the end of the summer, public toilets operated by the municipality will be open longer, from 7 a.m. to midnight.
