The point where you start your holy time , getting prepared to go to the Kaaba and start your Umrah , we should keep this places as clean as we can but the greatest problem there are the careless people , i cant imagine how they are careless even while going to visit the holy places.

Shamsuddeen Muhammad bin Abee Bakr Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said: ‘The Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- would not perform an extra Umrah exiting out of Makkah, after already having performed one, as many of the people do nowadays. Rather all the Umrahs that the Messenger performed were upon entering Makkah. He -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- lived in Makkah... More

Those who are willing to do Omrah again, they have to go out of Mecca and start again. The nearest point is Taneem. Taxis and private cars will call for Taneem to get passengers. It is a 10 minutes drive. Arrive Taneem and back to Mecca again. Nice and big mosque
