Single-use plastics ban

Victoria to ban single-use plastics by 2023.

The ban will apply to specific single-use plastics including plastic straws, cutlery, plates, drink stirrers, polystyrene food and drink containers, and plastic cotton buds sticks.

In many cases, these single-use plastics can be substituted with readily available, cost-effective alternatives.

The ban is part of the Government’s 10-year plan to build our state’s circular economy and transform Victoria’s waste and recycling system
