The End of the Plastic Bag

Wednesday 13th September / posted by Will Backler

On Tuesday, Environment Minister Stephen Dawson announced that WA will ban retailers from distributing single-use plastic bans, effective from July 1st, 2018.

WA will join South Australia, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and the ACT in introducing the  state wide bag bans.

The announcement has occurred after several local councils, and many businesses, have independently decided to stop or limit single-use bags.

Fremantle Council, which has been proactive for banning the bag since 2012, Mayor of Fremantle Brad Pettitt joined Simon Beaton on The Mag to talk about this announcement.
