The implementation of the ordinance banning the establishments in Boracay from using plastic bags has been put on hold.
This is because the office of the Chief Executive of Malay is doubtful if Municipal Ordinance 320, which has been approved by the Provincial Council of Aklan, can be implemented during this peak season.
In an interview with Yes FM News Center on Tuesday, March 26, Malay Administrator Godofredo Sadiasa clarified the matter saying there is still lack of information dissemination to the public in Boracay.
Sadiasa added that the current focus of attention by the Local Government of Malay is on security because of the record breaking arrival of tourists.
He also added that allegedly, the Chief Executive hopes that before the ordinance is implemented, there is cooperation on all sectors especially with the community.
The Malay Administrator further pointed out that not only establishments should move, since residents and other sectors in Boracay also have a big role in minimizing plastic garbage in the island.
Usually, during Peak Season together with the influx of tourists, garbage also increases.
