Fines On The Way For Supplying Single Use Plastic Bags
From the 1st January 2019, any retailers who supply the banned single use plastic bags risk fines of up to $5000.
Today Oliver Peterson spoke to Environment Minister Stephen Dawson about the ban which applies to lightweight plastic bags – including bags that are biodegradable, degradable or compostable – with handles and a thickness of 35 microns or less.
The State-wide plastic bag ban applies to all retailers – not just supermarkets.
Complaints can be lodged with the National Retail Association at http://www.bagbanwa.com.au
