Dubai stores to charge for plastic in 40 days

Starting July 1, retail, textile and electronic stores, restaurants and pharmacies will charge 25 fils on single-use bags at counters. The tariff is also applicable to e-commerce deliveries.

The policy will be evaluated ‘over several stages’ until single-use carrier bags are completely banned within two years, the Executive Council of Dubai announced in February.
