These products will be phased out by September 1, 2023
Single-use plastic bowls and plates will be phased out. Many suitable alternatives are already available, and bans are already in place in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia and will be introduced in Victoria shortly.

Exemptions, where plastic stemmed cotton buds are required for medical, veterinary, forensic and other scientific purposes will be developed.
