Cairo’s governor Atef Abdel Hamid called on Cairene citizens not to litter the streets and throw garbage, or they will immediately receive a fine that ranges between EGP 2,000 and EGP 20,000, according to the law.

Meanwhile, al-Weiley neighbourhood in Cairo started distributing papers among the citizens to warn them against throwing garbage in the streets and raising awareness about the fines.

14992

The Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics released statistics last year saying that 44.8 percent of Egyptians get rid of their garbage by disposing of them in the streets, while the rest give it to garbage collectors.

Cairo governorate has been actively taking steps in order to improve sanitation in Egypt. Last year, it announced that booths will be set up to purchase non-organic waste from people for the purposes of recycling.

Additionally, Cairo stated that shop owners who do not place trash bins outside their shops will be fined up to EGP 5,000.

Littering is a significant problem in Egypt, and its repercussions are not only limited on the environment but it also endangers the health of citizens. Following the 2011 revolution, numerous initiates surfaced in order to fight littering and call for recycling.

A friend of mine was issued a fine for stubbing out a fag outside New Steet Station Birmingham recently. He argued that there were no bins around for rubbish. The jobsworth still gave him the ticket. Now are there going to be jobsworth on the streets of Luxor to enforce the policy? I won't hold my breath.

Don't be silly. Luxor is not Egypt. Only Cairo is considered to be Egypt by officialdom.

wonder if this applies to the people who may or may not be policing the situation. Seen them many times throwing their tabs away.

That's nothing,,,,, £86.000 grand for a D&D even MT would be spluttering over his margarita.
Who hasn't done the same ? some more than others even whilst driving an ambulance.

If it was carried out in Luxor Carrie I am in total agreement with you, the place can look like a dustbin from time to time especially in the old part where not many tourists go. But I have to say I have seen streets off the main road looking like the aftermath of Glastonbury. I always thought that TV Street used to be the worse. Maybe it will only take a few fines to stop it the word will get around.
