Banning single-use plastic and expanded polystyrene products

From 1 September 2021, single-use plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery, plates and expanded polystyrene products will join single-use plastic shopping bags on the banned list in Queensland.

About 300 million tonnes of plastic waste is produced every year, almost equivalent to the weight of the entire human population.

At least 8 million tonnes of plastics leak into the ocean each year—which is equivalent to dumping more than 170 wheelie bins of plastic into the ocean every minute.

These laws will build on the success of our single-use plastic bag ban, which has seen a massive 70% reduction in all plastic bag litter since July 2018.
