Muscat Municipality issues reminder of hefty fine on littering in Oman
Muscat: Those found littering public areas and streets can expect an OMR1,000 fine, Muscat Municipality said in a reminder of the municipal decision of 2017.

Muscat Municipality also reminded all that the fine will be doubled for repeat offenders - and that the new rule applies to everyone.

The decision was first issued on 16 March, 2017, and came into effect 30 days after the announcement, on April 15, 2017.

The rule states that people who are caught littering “open areas” and wadis will be fined OMR1,000 and given 24 hours to clean it up.
