Tehran's City Council passed on Tuesday the general principles of a bill on modifying the system of collecting and disposing of special waste in the capital. 
Special waste is a waste that requires special handling and disposal methods, which in this case includes medical, industrial and agricultural refuse.
Based on the bill, which was approved with 11 affirmative and 3 negative votes, the costs of collecting special waste material will rise and the Waste Management Organization (a subsidiary of the Tehran Municipality) is tasked to report to judicial authorities any case in which such sort of waste is not separated at source, IRNA reported.
