The Queensland bag ban will affect all retailers who currently use lightweight, single-use plastic bags, including HDPE plastic, biodegradable, compostable, and degradable bags.

This includes supermarkets, department stores, convenience stores, pharmacies, fast food outlets and many other retailers.

From 1 July 2018, you will not be allowed to supply or use any of the bags included in the ban. If you currently use banned bags, you will need to plan, prepare and make changes over the next few months.
