Following the legislation to ban plastics

In 2019, the word was that plastics and Styrofoam would see a phasing out period and that a cutoff point would be established for importers.  Today on The Morning Show, one caller informed us that the importation of plastics and Styrofoam is still ongoing. 

In 2019, the word was that plastics and Styrofoam would see a phasing out period and that a cutoff point would be established for importers.  Today on The Morning Show, one caller informed us that the importation of plastics and Styrofoam is still ongoing.  We followed up on the claim and were able to confirm that the legislation to ban single-use plastics is yet to be passed.  With that said, importers are within the law to continue importing the items.  We spoke with a representative from the Department of Environment, who noted that the department has done their part in terms of drafting the legislation and revising it based on consultations from stakeholders. Through the Ministry, they had forwarded all the information to the Attorney General’s office. Now, it’s just waiting for the rest of the process to be completed. Tomorrow, we will contact the Ministry to get more definitive information on a possible date for the legislation.
