Riyadh Season: SR500 fine for littering during festival, orgazisers say


Riyadh Season has attracted visitors from across and outside the Kingdom and with it a large amount of litter. Riyadh Boulevard’s fountain has been affected by the littering, and the General Entertainment Authority (GEA) has taken action with the help of Riyadh’s municipality to keep it clean.



Authorities have imposed penalties, ranging from SR500 ($133) to SR1,000, on people found to be littering.

@RiyadhSeason shared a statement on Twitter that said:

“In order to maintain the cleanliness of all areas of the Riyadh Season and preserve its beauty, a fine of SR500 has been imposed on anyone who throws waste away from its designated place. If it is repeated for the second time, the fine will be doubled to SR1,000.”

“In order for all of us to enjoy all areas of #RiyadhSeason, it is necessary to maintain the cleanliness and beauty of the place. Throwing waste outside its designated place will result in a fine.”

The Twitter account also shared a table to classify each violation and penalty.

The GEA announced that 1.2 million people visited Riyadh Boulevard in just 24 hours.

GEA President Turki Al-Sheikh shared a video on Twitter that shows the actions being taken to rid the fountain of litter.

@Turki_alalshikh said:



“I wish for everyone to maintain the cleanliness of the fountain.”
