Cebu City ‘not yet ready for plastic bags ban’ – PhilippinesPosted on June 7, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Is Cebu City prepared to ban the use of plastic shopping bags for even once a week?
Most city councilors don’t think so, saying the proposal by Councilors Nida Cabrera and Edgar Labella to restrict the use of plastic shopping bags on Saturdays needs further study and public consultation.
The council set a a public hearing on July 18 to hear what citizens have to say.
“I don’t think Cebu City is prepared for this,” said Councilor Augustus Pe Jr. during the May 30 session where they deferred final deliberation on the measure.
The proposed ordinance seeks to reduce the volume of non-biodegradable garbage in the city.
