The extent of penalties for environmental pollution caused by construction waste and healthcare waste has increased. Such a statement made today the Mayor of Tbilisi.
According to Kakha Kaladze, the amendments to the Waste Management Code have already been backed by the Parliament.
“In case of hazardous medical waste, a natural person will be fined GEL 5 000 instead of GEL 500, a legal entity will be fined GEL 10 000 instead of GEL 1 000. As for the construction and other inert waste, a natural person will be fined GEL 5 000 instead of GEL 200, while a legal entity will be fined GEL 15 000 instead of GEL 1 500. We will do everything to change the existing reality”, - said the Mayor of Tbilisi.
