Around 300 waste and scrap centers and vehicles in Tehran sealed

Around 300 waste collection centers and scrap car shops in Tehran have been sealed off.

The CEO of the Waste Management Organization announced that 140 to 150 garages and scrap shops in Tehran were sealed off and closed with the cooperation of the prosecutor during this year’s Nowruz holidays.

Reza Mohammadi stated on Monday, April 8th, that in the past six months, 150 unauthorized waste transport vehicles have also been confiscated.

Mr. Mohammadi criticized the fact that despite the criminality of waste dumping in waste management laws, heavy penalties have not been imposed for waste collection.

In recent years, reports on the phenomenon of waste dumping, especially the inappropriate situation of children engaged in garbage collection, have been published in Iranian media, but official Iranian bodies have never provided accurate statistics on the individuals collecting waste.

Tehran Municipality announced in 2020 that there were about 14,000 waste collectors in the country and estimated that around 4,700 of them, mostly children, were active in Tehran.
