Plans to ban plastic cutlery and polystyrene cups

UK government announces a 'war on plastic' in bid to reduce waste.

The government plans to ban single use plastic cutlery, plates and polystyrene cups in England. Ministers say the 'war on plastic' will reduce litter and plastic waste in the oceans.

The ban will be discussed in the autumn after the European Union decided to ban such items last July, and Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland already have plans to do the same.

Having already banned plastic straws and stirrers, the government says it does not rule out including more plastic items in the forthcoming ban.

An exemption to plastic straws will allow hospitals, bars and restaurants to provide plastic straws to people with disabilities or certain medical conditions that require them.

What our clients are saying

I have seen Ordara on the internet and called them to enquire. I was absolutely amazed by their honesty and it was the best thing I have done for my shop. Would recommend it to every takeaway.

Ali in Bedminster

I can't say enough about Ordara. My customers keep saying how great the ordering experience is. The staff also love the EPOS system which is very easy to use.

Murtaza in Peterborough

Commission based online ordering [..] was taking so much money off me. When I started working with Ordara I was smiling again. They come and install themselves. Absolutely recommend it to all restaurants.

Mehmet in Bristol

The system is very comfortable to use. It's affordable, efficient and effective compared to other systems I have used. I highly recommend it.
