Plastic ban enforced at Clark freeport

Ding Cervantes - The Philippine Star

CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga, Philippines – The use of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials is now prohibited here.

“A plastic bag may only be used as primary packaging material for wet goods, excluding those that are pre-contained in plastic wraps as part of the product’s packaging,” the Clark Development Corp. (CDC) said in a press statement issued yesterday.

The CDC said biodegradable plastics and polystyrene ice chests and insulators may be allowed, provided there is a certification from the manufacturer and samples are first submitted for approval by the CDC environment permits department.

Violators, including business establishments, face fines ranging from P1,000 to P20,000 and the revocation of business permits.
