Welsh Assembly introduce compulsory bag charges

25 May 2011 2:51 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

 From 1st October 2011 a minimum 5p charge will be introduced on all 'one time use' carrier bags for retailers in Wales. 

The Welsh Assembly is introducing a compulsory minimum 5p charge on all carrier bags, the move is designed to encourage people to re-use their bags and reduce waste. 

Currently the scheme is only affecting retailers and those supplying goods from within Wales but it is likely that other governemnts will be watching teh results of the scheme.
