SINGLE-USE PLASTICS BAN FROM 1 NOVEMBER 2022
From 1 November 2022 certain single-use plastics like straws, cutlery and plates will be banned in NSW.
Single-use plastic items and packaging make up to 60% of all litter in NSW. The single-use plastic ban will prevent almost 2.7 billion items of plastic litter from entering the environment in NSW over the next 20 years.
