Fees collected to tackle illegal waste

- +

The Industrial Works Department is planning to collect fees from waste treatment business operators to deal with illegal waste dumping. 

Seri Atipatha, deputy department chief, said the fees to be collected from the waste treatment operators will be used to set up a fund to pay for the cost in handling and treating illegally-dumped hazardous waste.

A regulation is being drawn up to facilitate the formation of the fund, which has become necessary due to rises in the illegal practice, particularly in areas close to residential communities.
