Waste Reduction Bill passes second stage

 

 

 

'In a rare showing of political consensus in the Oireachtas, representatives from four parties as well as Independents have come together to support a new waste reduction Bill.'

The Green Party and Labour are co-sponsoring a Bill that among other things it proposes that non-biodegradable coffee cups be banned from 2020, and has also proposed a deposit and refund scheme for closed beverage containers.
