Minister of Commerce and Industry and Chairman of the Public Industries Authority Abdullah Al-Joan on Monday declared the banning of exports and re-export of the carton waste for three months.

The ministry said in a statement that the minister’s decision was in line with the approach to recycle carton boxes.

Carton is a basic material for Kuwaiti factories and providing some products for the local market at reasonable prices, it said, noting that the local factories need up to 30,000 tons of carton per month.

It also indicated that the factories’ need for cartons could not be possible without recycling the waste.
