Let­ter about junk mail over­load prompts res­i­dent to take ac­tion on fly­ers

7 Days in Dubai - - LIFE -

In re­sponse to Han­nelie Muller’s let­ter ‘How can we put an end to the junk mail over­load’ (May 11), I was so fed up with the ad­ver­tis­ing ma­te­rial on our gate that I emailed Dubai Mu­nic­i­pal­ity last Novem­ber to re­quest a ban on all but 7DAYS de­liv­er­ies, but didn’t even re­ceive an ac­knowl­edge­ment. Han­nelie’s let­ter has prompted me to try again, via the web­site www.dm.gov.ae un­der the ‘Have Your Say’ page. Per­haps oth­ers would like to have their say too? SEJ Dubai en­sur­ing plenty of space in both shel­ters for com­muters when wait­ing for their ride. Not only that, the Smart Shel­ters, which pro­vide on-the-go prod­ucts and ser­vices, are op­er­ated by Smart Shel­ter, in part­ner­ship with RTA and Right An­gle Me­dia, and we got to­gether to jointly con­duct a sur­vey among com­muters be­fore the launch. We asked whether they pre­ferred seat­ing space or val­ued-added ser­vices, such as mo­bile re-charg­ing. The ma­jor­ity of re­spon­dents said they wanted ser­vices, not seat­ing. We are pleased that com­muters, as well as passers-by are now tak­ing ad­van­tage of the con­ve­nience stores on their doorstep. Res­i­dents will see more of the Smart Shel­ters across the city in fu­ture. Ro­hit Dalmia Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Smart Shel­ter
