ARE YOU READY FOR THE BAG BAN WA?

From 1 January 2019 it will be illegal for any retailer in Western Australia to provide lightweight plastic shopping bags.

The Western Australian Government introduced a ban on lightweight shopping bags from 1 July 2018.

The ban applies to all lightweight plastic shopping bags which have a thickness of 35 microns or less, including degradable, biodegradable and compostable bags.  The new laws will affect all retailers – including grocery stores, takeaway food, pharmacies, and even markets.
