Single-use Plastic Products bans in South Australia

The Single-use and Other Plastic Products (Waste Avoidance) Bill 2020 prohibits the sale, supply and distribution of certain single-use plastic products and establishes a framework for adding other products in the future. The legislation has been prepared to implement the government’s July 2019 announcement to address the impacts of single-use plastic products. 

The State Government is helping retailers and the restaurant and catering industry to prepare for the change.
This is where you will find the latest information about the banned and not banned items, critical dates following consultation with industry, contact details of suppliers of alternative items (coming soon), and resources to help with staff and customer communications (coming soon).
We are progressively updating this website with information and resources as these are developed. If you have queries please email Green Industries SA  CLICK HERE.
