Everything your business needs to
manage the QLD plastic bag ban
The Queensland Government will enforce a state-wide ban on single-use plastic bags from 1 July 2018.
This ban will affect all retailers – from grocery stores to fashion boutiques, from convenience stores to fast food outlets – that currently use light-weight plastic bags, including HDPE plastic, biodegradable, compostable, and degradable bags.
The National Retail Association has partnered with the Queensland Government to help retailers navigate the new compliance issues, find alternative bag solutions, and to help retailers manage consumer sentiment to minimise negative impacts on their businesses.
