Govt Takes First Steps in Implementing Plastic Ban

The Government has convened a meeting of all stakeholder agencies as it moves to roll-out its ban on a range of non-biodegradable plastic and styrofoam products.

Government Senator Matthew Samuda made the disclosure in the Senate on Friday.

In the meantime, Opposition Senator, Sophia Fraser-Binns, is urging the Government to sensitize the public to the fact that biodegradable plastic bags are available at several locations in Jamaica and are not prohibited by the ban.

The ban is to take effect in January next year
