Plan for Plastics - Stage 2 regulations - consultation survey for individual community members

Closes 18 Nov 2022

Opened 23 Sep 2022

Overview

On 13 June 2021 the State Government announced Western Australia’s Plan for Plastics.

The plan includes introducing regulations to ban single-use plastic items in a two-stage approach. Stage 1 regulations came into effect on 1 January 2022.

The scope of the proposed Stage 2 regulations includes: barrier/produce bags, EPS packaging, EPS cups, coffee cups/lids, microbeads, cotton buds with plastic shafts, lids for bowls/cups/take-away food containers, and oxo-degradable plastics. 

This survey is designed for individual respondents from the community. 

If you are responding from a community organisation, business, industry or government agency perspective, there are other surveys set up which will be a better fit. We recommend you close this survey and return to the consultation home page to choose another survey option.

Why your views matter

The State Government's preference is to introduce a State-wide ban for these plastic products. Further information about the reasons and design of the ban is provided in the consultation document here

We invite stakeholders from all sectors to respond to this survey as one way to provide feedback on the proposed regulations. Individual responses to this survey will be kept confidential.

Written submissions may also be sent to plastic-action@dwer.wa.gov.au or in hardcopy to Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, Prime House, Locked Bag 10, Joondalup DC, Western Australia, 6919. 

If you would like to attend a Stage 2 online information session, you can register here.  

Your feedback will then be considered in the design of the proposed regulations.
