Wednesday 24 March, talk on plastics and the Law of Waste Products

Prohibitions against single use plastics are now active. If you wish to know more on this matter then the talk on “The Law of plastics and waste products” should not be missed and will be given virtually this evening.

Rubbish that is not naturally biodegradable is a growing problem worldwide not just in Menorca. The Public Ministry tells us that legislation can help establish ways for reducing the tendency of throwing rubbish into landfills, polluting the sea and putting health into danger.

To know first-hand the regulations and strategies included in the Balearic Law of Waste, a talk with one of the people who have coordinated this new legislation has been organised jointly between the Ateneu de Maó and GOB. Sebastià Sansó, is the director general of Waste and Environmental Education of the Balearic Government.

This is an opportunity to know at first hand the main problems identified, what solutions can be applied and any obstacles expected for achieving them. After the talk, there will be an opportunity for discussion with those involved.
