Green Industries SA is seeking public feedback on the proposed ban on single-use plastic products.

Announced by Deputy Premier Susan Close, the State’s next steps for banning single-use and other plastic products will see them banned over the next three years with the bans implemented in three stages, the first of which is to commence on 1 September this year

“The products banned from September 1 include plastic pizza savers, plastic-stemmed cotton buds, single-use plastic bowls without lids and single-use plastic plates for food,” Deputy Premier Susan Close said.

“We want to hear your feedback on the definitions of the banned products and the proposed exemptions, including if there may be any potential unintended consequences from the draft regulations (for example, the banning of a plastic product giving rise to the use of other non-banned plastic products),” she said.

Green Industries SA said if anyone wished to share their thoughts, they could do so through the YourSAy survey or by submitting a written response by 28 February this year.

It said it would consider the feedback to finalise the proposed draft regulations which were to be submitted for approval before being gazetted, coming into effect on September 1.

Further information about the planned ban on single-use plastic products can be access on the YourSay website at this PS News link.
