Victoria is taking action against single-use problematic plastics.
Selected single-use plastic items were banned in February 2023, and additional items are under consideration for future bans as the Toward 2025 National Packaging Targets approach.
We're here to help you understand the legislation and make the switch to sustainable packaging solutions.
Victoria, we've got you covered.
VICTORIA LEGISLATION EXPLAINED
Items already banned
From 1 February 2023:
- Single-use plastic straws
- Single-use plastic cutlery
- Single-use plastic plates
- Single-use plastic beverage stirrers and sticks
- Single-use plastic expanded polystyrene food and drink containers

Legislation will not affect medical or scientific equipment, emergency management services or individuals who require particular single-use plastic products due to disability or for health and safety.
