ACT passes plastic ban bill -AustraliaPosted on April 1, 2021 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
“The ban, which is in two parts, will mean that plastic cutlery, stirrers and polystyrene food and beverage containers cannot be used after 1 July 2021,’ said Jeff Angel, Director of the Alliance. “Plastic fruit and vegetable produce bags, oxo-degradable products and plastic straws will be banned in 2022; and the ACT will be the first Government to declare that public events must be plastic free. Banning these products is a good first step, although we urge coffee cups and lids, other takeaway plastics, cotton bud sticks and heavyweight plastics bags should be included asap, rather than waiting until 2023.”
At least a good start.
