Have your say on banning more single-use plastic items

Queensland's ban on single-use plastic straws, stirrers, plates, bowls with lids and cutlery, and expanded polystyrene takeaway food containers and cups started on 1 September 2021. The Queensland Government is interested in your feedback on the proposal to expand the ban to include other single-use or unnecessary plastic items.
