Hefty fine for violating S'gor 'no plastic' rule in 2017
Business operators must adhere to Selangor's policy to discourage the use of plastic bags and polystyrene boxes from Jan 1 next year or face a maximum RM1,000 fine.
According to state exco member Elizabeth Wong, the policy will be included as a condition in business licenses.
From next year onwards, business owners must not give out plastic bags for free. Instead, they must collect RM0.20 for each bag. However, the use of polystyrene boxes will be banned.
