The Lagos State government in Nigeria has imposed a crackdown on production companies and distribution outlets involved in the usage and dissemination of Styrofoam and other single-use plastics. The ban aims to prevent the further circulation of these banned products. The state Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources has directed the Lagos State Waste Management Authority and the Kick Against Indiscipline agency to implement the ban immediately. The decision was prompted by the frequent clogging of drainage channels with Styrofoam, despite regular cleaning efforts. The state is determined to protect its environment, particularly as a coastal city. The ban is based on existing laws and regulations, including the National Environmental (Sanitation and Waste Control) Regulation 2009 and the 2017 State Environmental Management and Protection Law. Producers, distributors, and end-users of Styrofoam face heavy fines, penalties, and potential premises sealing if they fail to comply with the ban.
