The Environmental Health and Sanitation Unit implements  policies based on the National Environmental Sanitation Policy as well as spot fines approved by the General Assembly in regards to Sanitation.

 An example is a spot fine of GHS 200.00 for shop owners who fail to take part in clean up exercises within their jurisdiction but rather open their shops for operation in the course of the activity.

Citizens who litter, do open defecation, generate excessive noise, burn refuse, keep unapproved number of animals or birds or responsible of such or other nuisances are arraigned before court of which they are fined or jailed or both should one be found guilty.
