The use of plastic containers is prohibited in the UAE

The Abu Dhabi Environmental Protection Agency will ban the use of plastic containers in all parts of the country from June 1 this year.

The measure is part of a comprehensive policy launched by the UAE government in 2020 to protect the environment and combat climate change.

According to the UAE News Agency, the ban on plastic containers will further reduce the damage to human health and reduce the amount of waste. It is said that by June, the government of Abu Dhabi will begin a comprehensive campaign to inform the people of the emirate of the new order.

The Abu Dhabi government is exploring the possibility of launching a campaign to accept plastic bottles in exchange for cash prizes. Also, by 2024, the people of the emirate will completely abandon the use of disposable cups, plates and food containers.
