The Northern Territory is taking action against single-use problematic plastics.
Selected single-use plastic items are banned at all events held on Darwin City Council land, and the NT Government has recently confirmed their intention to ban additional items state wide by 2025.
We're here to help you understand the legislation and make the switch to sustainable packaging solutions.
NT, we've got you covered.
NT Legislation Explained
Items already banned
From 1 January 2019:
- Single-use plastic disposable coffee cups and lids
- Single-use plastic smoothie cups and lids
- Single-use plastic straws
- Single-use plastic cutlery
- Single-use plastic beverage stirrers
- Single-use plastic plates, bowls and takeaway containers
- Deliberate release of helium balloons.
These single-use plastic items were banned from all events held on Council land including markets.
An exemption applies to individuals with a disability or medical need to use plastic straws.
Enforcement & Penalties
The City of Darwin have not yet released a statement on enforcement and penalties for failure to comply.
Market stall holders were given a transition period to adjust to the new regulations with a goal that the markets would be single-use plastic free by 2020.
