The Queensland Government will enforce a state-wide ban on single-use plastic bags from 1 July 2018.

The Queensland Government has passed the Waste Reduction & Recycling Amendment Bill 2017 which will forbid retailers from providing or selling lightweight plastic bags (known as single-use singlet bags) from 1 July 2018.

This ban will affect all retailers that currently use some form of lightweight plastic bag – from grocery stores to fashion boutiques, from convenience stores to fast food outlets.

The National Retail Association (NRA) has partnered with the Queensland Government to help retailers navigate the new compliance issues, find alternative bag solutions and manage customer sentiment to ultimately minimise negative impacts on your business.
