Two Manchester businesses to face court for breaching plastic ban

Philip Cross, Acting Manager of NEPA's Enforcement Branch
 
Two Manchester businesses are to appear in court for breaching the single-use plastic ban.
 
They were served on Friday by the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA).
 
Philip Cross, Acting Manager of NEPA's Enforcement Branch, said the Agency was forced to resort to criminal prosecution because other methods, such as warnings, have not worked. 
 
NEPA said it will be extending the enforcement drive to western Jamaica in the coming week.
 
The public is being reminded that it is an offence to import, manufacture, distribute or use scandal bags and plastic drinking straws. 
 
The importation of Styrofoam products used in the food and beverage industry is also prohibited.
