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