Sharjah ruler issues new laws on water, hygiene

Sharjah, Feb 13 (IANS/WAM): Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, the ruler of Sharjah in the UAE, has issued new laws on preserving water and maintaining hygiene in the emirate.

The law on water is aimed at regulating and rationalising consumption of water to ensure sustainability as well as prevent depletion and waste of water resources.

The law on hygiene aims to preserve the environment, public health and contribute to sustainable development.

It also aims to maintain the aesthetic and cultural appearance of Sharjah, and ensure that waste is disposed through processing in scientific ways.

The law prohibits people to throw or dispose any type of waste and residue on fields, roads or sidewalks, beaches, rooftops and other places, whether public or private.

    great step from his highness, we must respect the water, it is our life. on friday when i see a green garden, i feel sad, more plastic bags and bev cups in the garden. you can see less grass and more waste people thrown. the sharjah govt spend so much money to keep greenery and beauty of the garden and the public distroy the beauty by waste bags..why they dont use dust and waste bins? let we all educate the people to keep it green and free from waste.
