The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) yesterday raised the reward for those who provide information on littering in a bid to boost the effect of an upcoming cleanup campaign. The government is set to launch a nationwide environmental cleanup campaign in the middle of next month, with those who fail to keep the area within a 4m radius around their homes or businesses clean being subject to fines of up to NT$6,000 (US$183). Beginning in October at the earliest, the EPA will give out 30 percent to 50 percent of the fines received from litterers as reward money for those who report the littering, which means the maximum amount of the reward will be NT$3,000, EPA officials said.
