Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) has published a Consultation on proposals for the reduction of the usage of Single-use Plastic (SUP) beverage cups and food containers in Northern Ireland. In the Consultation the Department has suggested three options for plastic items: an outright ban; a levy along the lines of the Carrier Bag Levy; and a voluntary reduction approach.
You are encouraged to respond to the Consultation and provide your feedback on the optimum solution.
The Consultation closes on 17 December 2021 at 23:45.
