Industry Minister, Audley Shaw, says he’ll be pushing for new laws mandating the separation of plastic waste from other refuse.
He says the improper disposal of plastic remains a threat to the environment.
The Minister was addressing the Lasco Reap Awards Ceremony this afternoon at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston.
He’s urging Jamaicans to make an industry out of recycling plastic.
The Industry Minister says being a developing nation isn’t an excuse for improper plastic disposal.
