Police issue stern warning against smugglers of Polythene bags.- RawandaPosted on April 27, 2016 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Rwanda National Police (RNP) has issued a stern warning against people who attempt to smuggle plastic bags in the country. The warning comes after Police, on April 21, intercepted a group of smugglers trying to sneak 80 packets of non-biodegradable polythene bags in the country through the hills of Cyuve Sector in Musanze District.
He added that, “Use of plastic bags is prohibited since 2008. From then, we have put up several mechanisms including legal provisions against use of plastic bags. We have also encouraged the public to be alert and report anybody dealing in any materials that degrade the environment.”
Rawanda can do this but not a modern country like Australia? Why is that?
