Some plastic producers and users have expressed reservations about the hint dropped by President John Mahama that the government may ban the use of plastic materials, should the manufacturers fail to properly manage plastic waste.

Last Saturday, President John Mahama gave a hint that the government might consider placing a ban on the use of plastics, if manufacturers failed to properly manage plastic waste in the country.

He warned that Ghana might go the 'Rwanda way' by banning the use of plastics, if immediate measures were not taken by producers to arrest the situation.

His call came in the wake of various concerns raised from many quarters about the menace that plastic waste caused.

“Plastics have become such a pollutant in our environment that if the producers of plastics don’t do something about it then we would have to go the Rwanda way.

“In Rwanda plastics are banned, nobody uses plastics and yet they are surviving. And so we need to come out with a solution this plastic thing. If we can’t handle and manage plastic waste then we must ban it so that we don’t have plastic waste at all.”

But the acting President of the Ghana Plastic Manufacturers Association, Nana Adawu XIII, said that instead of a knee-jerk approach to the issue, there was the need to approach it holistically, by exploring innovative ways to manage plastic waste.
