KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) has established a hotline, to receive comments and queries on the recently announced ban on single-use plastic bags, styrofoam and plastic straws, which will take effect on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.

NEPA said the public may call the 876-285-8531 hotline from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on weekdays.

The hotline follows the implementation of an email address— policyonplasticban@nepa.gov.jm — on Friday, both of which the public may use to submit comments, suggestions and queries.

NEPA is also encouraging manufacturers and other impacted stakeholders are also encouraged to use the dedicated channels to present their queries regarding the exemption application process.
