Queensland to ban single-use plastic bags from 2018Posted on November 25, 2016 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
The Queensland Government will ban single-use plastic shopping bags from 2018, and will not wait for other eastern states to do the same.
- Queensland says it will not wait for Victoria and NSW to come on board for an east-coast ban
- Ban on single-use plastic bags would start in 2018
- LNP Opposition has promised to phase-out single-use bags if elected
Labor has been considering a ban for more than a year, and in recent months has been pushing for New South Wales and Victoria to join a so-called east-coast ban
Finally a East Coast state sees the way forward to the future. Why is the state of Victoria to be last to take initiatives again!
