MANAGING THE BAN
The Queensland bag ban affects all retailers who currently use lightweight, single-use plastic bags, including biodegradable, compostable, and degradable bags.
This includes supermarkets, department stores, convenience stores, pharmacies, fast food outlets and many other retailers.
From 1 July 2018, you are not allowed to supply or use any of the bags included in the ban. If you currently use banned bags, you need to make changes now.
