According to the rules of the executive bylaw of the Waste Management Law, anyone who throw trash while walking or through the windows of cars or buildings shall be fined between SR200 and SR1,000.

The classification of numerous violations of the Waste Management Law and its executive regulations, as well as the fines and punishments for the violations, have been finalized in a table by the National Center for Waste Management (MWAN).

The table provides information on various offenses and their associated consequences. The information is accessible on the National Competitiveness Center-affiliated unified electronic platform known as the Public Consultation Platform (Istitlaa).

The platform enables the general public to voice their opinions and provide input on the regulations’ proposed provisions.

A minimum charge of SR1,000 and a maximum fine of SR10,000 will be imposed on people who dig up waste containers, disperse their contents, and remove recyclable waste, according to the center.

Construction waste dumping in public areas or on private property is punishable by a fine of up to SR50,000.

If building, remodeling, or demolition trash is not removed, there could be fines of up to SR20,000.

A punishment of up to SR1,000 may be imposed on anyone who discards significant pieces of domestic waste, such as mattresses, furniture, and the like, in locations that are not intended for them.

If the green garbage is disposed of in areas that are not approved for it or close to the containers, the same punishment will be applied.

If garbage is given to a service provider or waste management facility without first verifying that it has been granted legal authorisation to receive waste, a maximum fine of SR10 million will be applied.

For a violation of failing to remove waste from building or demolition activity, as well as for dumping waste in wells, beaches, flood passageways and valleys, sewage networks, or rainwater drainage networks, the center has set a minimum SR5,000 and maximum SR20,000 punishment.

For disposing of demolition or construction waste on private or public property, the maximum fine is SR50,000.

In the event of non-compliance with the center’s rules and standards on the separation of hazardous waste and healthcare waste at the source, as well as in the case of waste transport vehicles, the center will impose a punishment of at least SR10,000 and at most SR100,000.

In the event that waste collection and transportation service providers disregard the center’s rules regarding the system for tracking waste transport vehicles, destroy, disable, or alter the settings of the tracking device installed on the vehicle, or leave containers for unauthorized parties in public areas, the same fine will be applied.
