PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad(CMC) – The Trinidad Ministry of National Security says that it will be implementing a ban on glass bottles during the upcoming Carnival season.

“All par­tic­i­pants in the con­sul­ta­tion process ex­pressed their full sup­port for the in­tend­ed ban on glass bot­tles on Car­ni­val Mon­day and Tues­day, agree­ing that the thrust will cre­ate a safer and clean­er en­vi­ron­ment,” said a statement from the Ministry.
