According to local UK media outlet Hertsad, the St Albans City and District Council is planning to ask the government to ban disposable e-cigarettes.
Chris White, a representative of the St Albans City Council, has passed a motion to send a letter requesting a ban on such products. Additionally, White will write to the Hertfordshire County Council, urging them to enforce mandatory age restrictions for the sale of e-cigarette products.
The legislator, Sinéad Howland, has stated that even when sent for recycling, the design of disposable e-cigarette products means that the battery cannot be separated from the plastic.
Holland claimed, “The government announced a month ago that it intended to ban disposable e-cigarettes. However, this has not actually occurred.”
She also pointed out that disposable e-cigarettes are harmful to the environment, and an increasing number of young people are starting to use e-cigarettes. On this important issue, all votes were unanimous.
We need to continue applying pressure to ensure that the government makes the right decision and implements regulations to ban disposable e-cigarettes.
