NEMA gave 3 months notice to kenyan producers

29-01-2018 by redazione

The National Environment Management Authority, the executive arm of the Kenyan Ministry of Environment, has submitted its proposal to ban the production and distribution of plastic bottles in the country, starting 30 April.
The decision comes after the Authority issued a three-month ultimatum to plastic bottle companies.
"If the companies do not produce a convincing plan on plastic recycling by 30 April, the law will be gazetted," said NEMA director John Koncellah.
The Ministry of the Environment has long warned the country's plastic manufacturers that they should start thinking in concrete terms about bottle disposal, but according to NEMA this has not happened, as there has been no request for dialogue and no consultation between the government and companies.
After the total ban on plastic bags, Kenya may now follow other African countries such as Rwanda and Eritrea in abolishing drinks sold in plastic bottles, as well as imported ones.
