Qld govt considering which single-use plastics to ban next

The state government is pushing on with plans to ban more single-use plastics and is calling for a little help from Queenslanders.

It’s all to try and reduce the amount of plastic waste ending up as landfill and stop plastic pollution in our waterways and at the beaches.

Just a couple of months ago, in September, single-use plastic items such as straws, stirrers, cutlery, plates and expanded polystyrene products were banned, meaning they cant be sold or used at Queensland businesses.


The government is now considering what they can ban next, which could include things like coffee cups and lids, plastic drinking cups, dome lids, plastic-wrapped on magazines and newspapers, fruit and vegetable produce bags, expanded polystyrene meat trays, balloon stocks and closures and bread bag tags.

They’re calling on Queenslanders to have their say on what they think should be banned next.

An online survey is going live today and will be taking submissions through until January 28, 2022.
