South Australia to consider banning single-use plastics such as straws

The South Australian Government is considering banning single-use plastic products such as straws and cutlery.

Key points: SA discussion paper suggests banning single-use plastics

The plastic bag ban and the container deposit scheme, which was introduced in SA in 1977, came well ahead of similar schemes interstate.

"There won't be any specific government help if we move down this track, but what we have in South Australia is Green Industries SA, a body which will provide advice and support and grants and business and community groups to embrace better waste management strategies," he said.

Green Industries SA estimates South Australians use 255 million straws per year and up to 210 million disposable coffee cups annually.
