The recycling business brace for impact. The government banned plastic debris imports.

In February 2023 when the Cabinet resolved to ban imports of plastic debris from overseas markets after 2025, the government will continue to ease the import of plastic debris in duty-free zones, especially industrial plants that use plastic debris as raw materials for export as specified by the government. Including the import of plastic debris in general areas in case there is no domestic plastic debris or insufficient amount to be used as raw materials only during 2023 and 2024 before all imports of plastic debris are lifted in 2025.
