CABINET has again decided to ban the use of glass bottles on Carnival Monday and Tuesday.
The ban will begin at 4 am on Carnival Monday and run until midnight on Carnival Tuesday.
Under the regulation, no one other than an authorised person, will be prohibited from serving or drinking from a glass bottle at a highway, street, road, bridge, square, park, or other open space other than a beach, where the public has, is given conditionally access to, or is within the vicinity of a Carnival event in a public place.
Anyone found with a glass bottle(s) will be fined $1,000 and spend up to six months in jail.
Fitzgerald Hinds, the minister of national security, first introduced the ban in 2020 as an extra security precaution during festivities.
