Poll: Should there be a levy on non-recyclable plastics?
The Social Democrats want one.

THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS have proposed the introduction of a levy on non-recyclable plastics.

In its pre-Budget submission, the party states: “In order to reduce the use of plastics that cannot be recycled we would introduce a new levy on their sale.”

The Soc Dems also want a levy on single-use plastics. The party says both levies could generate €2 million in revenue. Ireland’s leading environmental coalition, the Environmental Pillar, has welcomed the suggestion.

What do you think: Should there be a levy on non-recyclable plastics?
