A “world first” plastic-free supermarket aisle is being unveiled in Amsterdam, prompting calls from campaigners for retailers to roll them out in the UK.

Re: Environmental concerns

Now, after all the talking, someone has put their money where their mouth is.

Independently-owned cafe chain Boston Tea Party is to become Britain’s first to implement a complete ban on disposable cups, which will come into effect on 1 June this year.

Re: Environmental concerns

The Istanbul Municipality will soon introduce a deposit scheme for plastic bottles in a move to encourage recycling. “

Smart vending machines” are to be launched to load money into Istanbul Cards, the city’s travel card, depending on the number of empty bottles they take in.

Re: Environmental concerns

Turkey has updated the regulatory regime for packaging and waste, including significant new rules regarding waste collection and recycling. Most notably, free plastic bags will be banned from the beginning of 2019 and packaging used in the Turkish market must be at least partially made from recycled materials.

The Regulation on Packaging Waste Control ("Regulation") was published in Official Gazette number 30283 on 27 December 2017, entering into effect on 1 January 2018.

Significant changes introduced by the Regulation include:

From 1 January 2019, sales points (including distant sales) will be prohibited from giving out plastic bags to users or consumers, free of charge.

Producers of plastic, paper, board, glass and metal packages which will be supplied to the domestic market must now at least partially use:

Packaging waste collected within Turkey, or
Recycled packaging waste gathered from such waste.

At least 80% of recycling targets must now be met from non-industrial sources.

The due date for submitting annual notifications about packaging materials produced, imported, exported, supplied and/or packages of imported goods, has moved from February to March.

Municipalities' responsibilities for collecting packaging waste are now outlined more clearly.

Residential sites with 100 or more houses must now have storage equipment for packaging wastes which complies with the municipality's collection system.

A colour coding system is introduced for bins used to collect packaging waste:

Blue for paper.
Yellow for plastics.
Grey for metals.

The Packaging Commission will now hold a meeting once per year.

Each municipality's vehicle fleet for collecting domestic waste must now include at least 20% vehicles capable of collecting packaging waste.

Please see this link for full text of the Regulation (only available in Turkish).

Information first published in the MA | Gazette, a fortnightly legal update newsletter produced by Moroğlu

Re: Environmental concerns

It seems to have slipped by a year though. it was originally planned that platic bags would not be given by shops from januatu 2018. i went into Migros and asked about this in Jan 2018, they said they had never heard of it!

Restrictions on plastic bags in Turkey due by 2018

Re: Environmental concerns

A couple of years ago Migros were selling good heavy duty large bags with two handles, one to use over the shoulder the shorter one for hand held. They were 25c each, think and we bought several of them, some for friends and others to use in Turkey and to take back to the U.K. We thought this was the beginning of no more plastic bags handed out at the till points. However, we were SO disappointed to see that nothing had changed and bags were freely given, whether or not you wanted them !
