More than 100 individuals have been slapped with fines for littering the roads of the capital city.

This was revealed by the Malé City Council.

The city council revealed that at a time the issue of people dumping waste on the roads of the congested capital city has been rising, a lot of garbage had been dumped on the roads with the fasting month of Ramadan approaching.

As such, residences were cleaned out and several damaged items including furniture and other equipment had been dumped on the side of the road before the fasting month approached.

With this, city council employees have been working tirelessly to collect and dispose of them.

However, waste is still being dumped in different regions of the capital.

Dumping garbage on public spaces, roads, parks, harbors, and other areas where trade takes place in Villimalé and Malé is prohibited.

If waste is dumped in such spaces, the council will file complaints with the Maldives Police Service (MPS), with which fines will be imposed on those who are accused of littering.

An MVR 500 fine is imposed for littering.

In a post on social media platform ‘X’ on Monday, Mayor Adam Azim revealed that a total of 22.5 tons of waste were collected from different regions of the capital city within four hours on Monday and 222.5 tons over the course of the past 16 days.
