From July 1, Dubai introduced a mandatory payment for single-use bags in the amount of 0.25 AED per piece when buying goods in retail establishments: supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, etc.
The fee is mandatory for any trading enterprise providing a single-use packaging for their customers. This includes plastic bags, paper bags and the stores are not obligated to provide free alternatives. The goal of this initiative is to change the consumer behavior in order to preserve the local environment.
Addressing this task iiko has a feature, which helps to automatically add the fee to the customer bill, helping the staff to avoid mistakes and possible consequences from the municipalities.
