A new edition of the brochure The ABCs of Urban Maintenance which contains all the information on urban maintenance was published at the start of the Urban Maintenance Month. The fresh publication addresses some new topics as well as information on the advantages of using studless winter tyres.
The ABCs of Urban Maintenance by the Tallinn Environment
Department provides information on maintenance requirements and
legislative provisions applicable in the city and outlines
rules for using playgrounds, dog walking areas and cemeteries.
Further, the publication features guidelines for waste sorting
and disposal. Another significant area addressed in the
brochure is maintenance services provided by the municipal
authorities. Also, the reader can find particulars of city
officials to contact in case of issues related to urban
maintenance. The information in the brochure has been updated
in line with the applicable legislation whereas some proposals
and recommendations made by citizens have been taken into
account too. The new edition outlines the advantages of using
studless winter tyres.
“Being the Deputy Mayor responsible for the environment public
health is my priority,” said Deputy Mayor Züleyxa Izmailova.
“Car owners in Tallinn should use studless winter tyres to
protect roads and health because studded tyres produce large
amounts of dust that can lead to serious health damage.”
The ABCs of Urban Maintenance is a 34-page document drawn up by
the specialists of the Tallinn Environment Department in
coordination with municipal bodies like Tallinn Cemeteries,
Tallinn Waste Centre, Municipal Engineering Services Department
and Tallinn Recycling Centre. The brochure has been printed
using 100% recycled paper. The print run is 2,750 copies
whereof 1,400 in Estonian, 900 in Russian and 450 in English.
The brochure is available from the enquiry desks of all
District Governments as well as the enquiry desk of the Tallinn
City Government building at Vabaduse plats 7.
