Ban Proposed on Sale of Disposable E-Cigarettes in Jersey
Jersey ministers propose ban on disposable e-cigarettes for environmental and health reasons, potentially expanding plastic legislation.

According to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), two ministers from the island of Jersey in the United Kingdom have expressed their desire to implement measures that would prohibit the sale of disposable e-cigarettes. They argue that the consideration for such an action stems from environmental concerns as well as health considerations.

 

Tom Binet and Jonathan Renouf, members of parliament, have stated that the proposed ban will undergo consultations with stakeholders.

 

This restriction can be implemented by expanding the disposable plastic bill, which prohibits the distribution of disposable plastics and paper bags on Jersey Island and includes provisions for allowing additional items to be added.

 

Two lawmakers expressed in a joint statement that due to disposable e-cigarettes being thrown in regular trash, materials are being destroyed instead of being recycled.

 

The statement highlights that e-cigarettes consist of various components such as plastic, glass, cardboard or metal casing, heating elements (coils), microprocessors, lithium-ion batteries, and liquid containers. While each part can be recycled, it is a time-consuming and manual process. Improper disposal of e-cigarettes can potentially lead to fires in garbage trucks or recycling facilities.
