    useless if you charge for plastic bags (eg; 10c 1 bag, ) then I would have to buy plastic bags in bulk.

    seriously. where do you think people put their food waste in between the hdb flat and the common rubbish bin. ? toss it all in from a bucket without a bag? you are literally told to bag it.

    not to mention dog poop, cat poop.

    you’re better off making biodegradable plastic bags mandatory and ban the sale of traditional plastic bags rather than a plastic bag charge. then supply might rise to meet demand and prices of biodegradable bags will fall.
