Victoria to ban single-use plastics like straws, cutlery by 2023 – AustraliaPosted on March 14, 2021 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
She said single-use plastics would be phased out over the next two years in the state “to reduce the significant amount of plastic waste going to landfill each year”.
“In many cases, these single-use plastics can be substituted with readily available, cost-effective alternatives,” she said.
The ban will include plastic straws, cutlery, plates, drink stirrers, polystyrene food and drink containers, and plastic cotton bud sticks.
This should be the start of what is to come over the next few years.
