 The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has warned to take strict action against those using plastic bouquet and flowers.

The KMC has imposed prohibition in the production, sales, distribution, storage and use of plastic bouquet and flowers as well as plastic bags with thickness below 40 micron since July 17 last year.

The warning was issued by the KMC in the wake of complaints pouring in that party palaces were still discreetly using plastic bouquets and flowers. The KMC would be making surprise visits to such party palaces and if found non-compliance with the new rule, it will take action, said Rajunath Pandey, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) at the Metropolitan Police Force.

"It is our responsibility to implement the legal framework put in place by the KMC for urban management and hygiene and environmental improvement. We have been closely monitoring the areas to be inspected," asserted SSP Pandey.

Urging one and all to cooperate with the KMC in this process, he cautioned to bring the offenders to book.

Meanwhile, the KMC has begun making compost manure from the bio-degradable wastages collected from the households in the Metropolitan. At present, the segregated household wastages have been collected from ward no 27 of the Metropolis. It would be later expanded to all 32 wards, said KMC.
