Simon Corbell informs us that the plastic bag ban has been passed by the Legislative Assembly.
The ban applies to single use plastic shopping bags of 35 microns or less, generally the type distributed through supermarkets, grocery stores and takeaway food outlets.
The full ban will come into effect on 1 November 2011, after a four-month transition period starting on 1 July 2011.
We await the inspection and enforcement process with great interest from a government that can’t even keep kids out of the city’s brothels.
