Last chance for a say on plas­tic bags

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

THE com­mu­nity’s last chance to com­ment on the State-wide ban of light­weight sin­gle-use plas­tic bags is fast ap­proach­ing.

Sub­mis­sions for com­mu­nity com­ment will close on Fri­day, with the ban set to be im­posed from July 1.

So far almost 88 per cent of the 2500 re­spon­dents have sup­ported the ban, a State Gov­ern­ment state­ment said.

“We want to hear from West Aus­tralians on how we can help you get ready for July 1, when re­tail­ers will no longer be able to pro­vide plas­tic bags to their cus­tomers,” En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Stephen Daw­son said.
