Latest News Philippines: General Trias to implement plastic ban – Journal.com.ph:
General Trias, Cavite — Mayor Luis “Jon-Jon” Ferrer IV will deploy a 15-man team of Task Force Bantay Kalikasan (TFBK) to check compliance of establishments and ensure their zero inventory of non-biodegradable materials upon effectivity of the Plastic and Styrophor Ban (Municipal Ordinance 2012-13) on Aug. 14.
Ferrer has sworn in TFBK leader Erineo Hatid and his deputized staff in the monitoring operations.
“Naniniguro lang po ang ating pamahalaang lokal sa ating ipapatupad na batas na masusunod ng mga mamamayan at maging zero inventory ng non-biodegradable materials ang ating target sa panahon ng pagsasabatas nito,” he said.
For now, the town is allowing the use of plastic packaging to give business owners a time to deplete their inventory, Ferrer said.
He reiterated that commercial sectors must regularly submit a report on their inventory of plastics, styrofoam and similar packaging materials as mandated in the order.
Violators will be fined from Php1,000 to Php3,000 and cancellation of business permit for repeated violations.
