Have your say on single use plastics in South Australia.

What's being decided?

We are seeking your feedback on single-use plastic products, and what single use plastic products should be considered for future intervention. Specifically, we want to know how to address the impacts associated with single-use plastic products, which are largely intended for disposal after only one use.

We’ve identified a range of single-use products that can be made of alternatives that are reusable, recyclable, or compostable. You can learn more about these in our consultation paper.
