Kathmandu, June 23
In a notice released on Wednesday, the KMC has said that people have to segregate their waste into biodegradable and non-biodegradable categories. People who fail to do so will be fined Rs 500.
The city government has time and again threatened that it will start fining people but has not done it to date.
The KMC believes that if waste is managed by the people who produce it, the city will not have a waste problem.
To help out, the city’s Environment Department says it will now send different vehicles on different days for the collection of degradable and non-degradable waste.
