GPS on rubbish trucks to track illegal dumping


Trucks that transport waste must be fitted with a GPS by February 11, 2022, under a decree issued by the agriculture minister as part of efforts to prevent indiscriminate dumping.

In an announcement issued on Friday, the ministry said that the decree, issued on November 11, introduces this requirement for all trucks that transport waste at a fee so that authorities can locate the person responsible in the event of illegal disposal.

It will help boost physical checks, using technology to prevent indiscriminate illegal dumping.

Every truck driver must submit the certificate of installation of the GPS to the director of the environment centre by February 11 at the latest.

Non-compliance is punishable with fines and/or temporary or permanent suspension from the register of waste managers.
