PM issues directive on managing, recycling and minimising plastic waste

24 August 2020 | 07:12:00 AM

The Prime Minister has just issued Directive 33/CT-TTg on strengthening the management, reuse, recycling, treatment and reduction of plastic waste.

Previously, in 2019, the Prime Minister launched a nationwide movement against plastic waste.

The PM instructed ministries, branches and localities to issue directives and plans to reduce and recycle plastic waste no later than October 30; as well as to minimise the use of disposable plastic products, and prioritise the selection of recycled and environmentally friendly products.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment was assigned to complete the solid waste management institution in the draft revised Law on Environmental Protection in the direction of considering waste and plastic waste as natural resources; promoting the development of circular economic models; as well as researching and building up technical environmental barriers against products and goods containing micro-plastic particles, plastic nano-bags and plastic bags.
