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%.
Governor to Submit Recycling Legislation
They need to do like they do in BVI grocery stores bring in your own bag or pay 25 cents for a plastic bag.
A system which the UK government quite recently implemented and which was quickly adopted by the BVI. In the last several years there are way more residents here using their own reusable bags than in the past and more are adopting the habit every day so things aren't stagnating where that's concerned.
The Schneider Hospital had that pay for a bag policy. They sold the best reusable bag I've ever seen. A tourist bought one from me they were that good.
Our local recycling is having trouble here in the states.
Most people recycle but the recycling centre is cutting back on collections. The falling price of oil is limiting the market for recycled plastics.
Companies are finding it cheaper to use "new" plastics.
As others have posted, I think that discouraging the use of plastics by the populous through education or $$ incentives may be more practical in such a small market.
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!
(I'd add straws and plastic cups, water bottles...)
Ban all the things!
