In Rome People Are Getting Charged €500 Fine for Dumping Masks in Street!

People in Italy are throwing used masks into the waters :(

Rome’s mayor Virginia Raggi who says she is taking the action after repeated complaints from the city’s refuse collectors who have to dispose of the used gloves and masks. Environmental association Legambiente said recently that with rain there is a high risk of the plastic trash finding its way into the sea.

The sight of plastic gloves and protective face masks being dumped on streets in Italian towns and cities is becoming more common, according to the Plastic Free association, particularly around car parks and on pavements outside supermarkets.
