South Australia's nation-leading ban on single-use plastics has now commenced. Hear first hand from Deputy Chief Executive Dr Ian Overton and Director, Policy & Strategy Mr Ian Harvey as they talk with local radio station 5AA about what the ban means for South Australia.
The South Australian Government is committed to reducing single-use plastics in South Australia. Following on from the ban on single-use plastic bags in 2009, on March 1, 2020 a new ban on single-use plastics like plastic straws, plastic cutlery and plastic stirrers came into effect. It’s a positive step towards avoiding waste and reducing the harm caused to our wildlife, including marine life, through litter and pollution.
