Bahrain To Introduce Biodegradable Garbage Bags

The Municipality is currently renewing contracts with the suppliers to incorporate new eco-friendly and biodegradable garbage bags.

This comes in accordance with the Ministerial Resolution No.11 of 2019 promulgated the Technical Regulations for plastic products which will enter into force from July 21, banning all single-use plastic bags across the Kingdom.

The transition to garbage bags will involve banning the import of non-bio degradable plastic bags to local markets.

A study conducted by SCE revealed that the transition to eco-friendly and biodegradable garbage bags will not affect the plastic products manufacturing sector in Bahrain.
