Drones to catch litterbugs in Dubai desert camps

13-Nov-2016 :

Dubai: Desert campers in Dubai beware. Drones will keep a watch over you to ensure you do not leave litter in the desert.

Dubai Municipality’s Waste Management Department has started using an unmanned aircraft fitted with a camera to check if campers in Dubai deserts are leaving rubbish behind.

If there is waste littered around someone’s camp, fines ranging from Dh500 to Dh5,000 will be imposed on the campers.
