Authorised agencies to collect waste products from consumers

The Prime Minister has issued a decision on the collection and treatment of waste products.

Under the decision, authorised agencies will collect and treat waste products such as batteries, electrical and electronic equipment, lubricants, and tyres from July 1, 2016.

The electrical and electronic equipment include compact and fluorescent bulbs, computers, computer screens and CPUs, printers, fax machines, scanners and cameras, and mobile phones, besides DVD recorders, television sets, air-conditioners and washing machines, as well as refrigerators.

Transport vehicles such as motorbikes and cars, which cannot be used, will be collected in July 2018.

The decision makes the manufacturers take responsibility for collecting their waste products.

The consumers are also responsible for handing over the waste products to individuals or entities charged with collecting waste products.

The decision will take effect on July 15 this year.
