Muscat: Those looking to export certain types of waste from next month will require a ‘no objection’ letter to do so, Oman’s Environmental Services Holding Company — Be’ah — announced.

The company, in coordination with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, said that this rule will be applied from September 2, 2018 onwards.

The restricted materials, according to officials, include used lead acid batteries, lead moulds, used tyres, all types of used oil (industrial, car lubricants, cooking oil, etc.), electronic waste, scrap cans, aluminium, scrap metals, all types of plastic and paper waste, in addition to cardboards.

Be’ah has revealed that those who wish to export these waste products will need to obtain a ‘no objection’ letter from them and will also need to submit a request through the online platform ‘Bayan’, in order to export the specified wastes.
