So he said in his State of the Territory address. Supposedly this week. That would be huge if it's implemented and enforced even if not 100%.

Submitted legislation has to be passed and then the funding found to implement it. It sounds nice but there's really no point in highlighting it before actual moves follow words.

They are also going to ban plastic bags. Well, along with plastic bags, they need to ban styrofoam. I can't tell you how much styrofoam I pick off the beach every weekend!

Must have funding.
It would be nice to get recycling started.
It's going to take a massive education program, however.
Mapp can talk the talk but I've yet to see actions result from his words in a positive manner.

They need to do like they do in BVI grocery stores bring in your own bag or pay 25 cents for a plastic bag.
