Clean Up Australia report shows plastic bag ban not curbing dumpingPosted on February 10, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Clean up Australia day is a national day where volunteers go out to clean up the country. Statistics are kept of the main types of litter found. Depending on number or items picked up or
the volume of items picked up, plastic bags, plastic bottles and cigarette butts generally are in the top three items. South Australia has a bottle refund scheme and a ban on plastic bags (thin grocery store type bags). While littered bottles are now rare in South Australia, it seems plastic bags still get dumped.
