Plas­tic mo­tion

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

SWAN coun­cil­lors have adopted a mo­tion that would see a re­duc­tion of sin­gle- use plas­tic at all func­tions and events hosted by the City. Coun­cil­lors sup­ported a mo­tion from Cr Claire Scan­lan that dis­cour­ages the use of sin­gle- use plas­tics such as straws, plas­tic bags, bal­loons and plas­tic plates and cut­lery at all City events. The mo­tion also in­cluded that in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the pol­icy be pro­vided to any­one hir­ing City premises or build­ings. Cr Scan­lan said the pol­icy would sup­port the work the City was al­ready do­ing to re­duce waste and ed­u­cate the pub­lic on plas­tic- free ini­tia­tives and re­cy­cling ed­u­ca­tion.
