Enforcement & Penalties
The City of Darwin have not yet released a statement on enforcement and penalties for failure to comply. However, market stall holders were given a transition period since the enforcement of the ban on January 1, 2019, allowing them to finish their current stock before switching to sustainable options that are compliant with the legislation.
The City of Darwin envisaged that by the end of 2019, the markets would be single-use plastic free.
