Quezon City asks hotels, restaurants to stop using single-use plastics

account_balanceQuezon City chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Quezon City started banning single-use plastics in hotels and restaurants.

The city’s ordinance on the prohibition of single-use plastics that was approved in 2019 was implemented on Feb. 15 this year.

“Restaurants and hotels are prohibited from distributing single-use plastic/disposable materials such as, but not limited to, plastic spoon and fork, knives, plastic/paper cups, plates, plastic/paper straws, coffee stirrers, and other single use plastic/disposal materials and Styrofoam,” the ordinance read.

City Ordinance No. SP-2876 S-2019 also prohibits distributing soap, shampoo, shower gels, liquid soap, and conditioners in sachets and single-use containers.

The local government cited 2013 data showing that less than 10 percent of the city’s waste is recyclable plastic, while 25 percent is residual waste that cannot be recycled.

Violators of the ordinance will pay a fine ranging from P1,000 to 5,000. A third offense may result in the revocation of an establishment’s business permit and the issuance of a closure order.

Other Metro Manila cities that have regulated the use of plastics are Muntinlupa, Pasig, Makati, Las Piñas, Pasay, and Parañaque.
