RGDATA has made a submission to Minister Eamon Ryan on the Government’s plans to introduce a so called “Latte Levy” on single use beverage cups. RGDATA called for a total ban on all non-compostable cups. The submission also argues that applying a levy to all single use cups could lead to more non-compostable cups in circulation. “Independent retailers have invested significantly in changing to the more expensive compostable cups so they should not be treated the same as non-compostable cups,” RGDATA Director General Tara Buckley stated.
