Beginning Jan 1, plastic drinking straws will not be given out at restaurants unless requested as the Federal Territories Ministry prepares to fully enforce the ban on these straws in 2020.

SHAH ALAM: All food and beverage outlets including restaurants in Selangor are prohibited from providing plastic straws at the counter to be freely picked up by customers from July 1.

Plastic straws would only be given at the request of the customer for each drink that was ordered, said state Environment, Green Technology, Science and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Hee Loy Sian.
