The following exemptions apply in Queensland only:

  • Plastic straws and cutlery that form part of a product
  • Paper plates and bowls with a plastic lining or coating are included in the ban by definition, however as a suitable alternative is not currently available, the Government won't pursue compliance on these items at this time.

Additionally, selected businesses are exempt and can continue to supply banned single-use plastics:

  • Clinics or facilities that provide care to persons with a disability or health needs, hospitals, dental clinics, medical clinics, pharmacies, aged care facilities, medical suppliers, and schools. 

Enforcement & Penalties

The Environment Protection Authority will enforce the legislation against single-use plastic products in Queensland.

Compostable packaging

The Queensland Government has stipulated that where bioplastic products are used to replace single-use plastic items specifically listed in the ban, these must comply with the Australian compostability standard (AS4736).

Bioplastic packaging outside of identified items can be certified to American or European standards, such as PLA lined hot cups.

Our range of compostable products is certified to the European (EN 13432) and American (ASTM D6400 & D6868) compostability standards, and are acceptable when replacing items not specifically listed in the ban.

Products that are not made of bioplastic (such as sugarcane) are also compliant when certified to international standards.

Our sugarcane products provide compostable alternatives to single-use plastic items and are permitted by the Queensland Government.
