Nine single-use plastic items were phased out in Western Australia on 1 January, which saw plastic bowls, cups for cold beverages and hot foods, plates, cutlery, stirrers, straws, EPS food containers, thick plastic bags, and helium balloon releases being banned in the state.

In June last year, the WA state government fast-tracked its Plans for Plastics by up to four years, leading to a range of single-use plastics being phased out from 1 January 2022 and 1 January 2023. 

Congratulations to WA on this good move.  The first of many we hope.
