Plastic Free in the City of Joondalup

Categories:

The City of Joondalup is excited to announce that WA Plastic Free will be providing free assistance to local food retailers as they adapt to the single-use plastic free future.

From 2022 onwards the WA State Government is introducing a single-use plastic item ban as part of a national effort to combat plastic pollution. WA Plastic Free will be providing free assistance to City businesses as part of that transition, through funding provided by the WA State Government.

Food retailers such as cafes, bars, restaurants, kiosks and vans are eligible for the program. The focus will be on single-use takeaway items where sustainable practices and alternative products already exist.

The global packaging industry is changing fast, which is fantastic for communities and the planet, but many local businesses are not yet fully prepared. City of Joondalup businesses will be able to receive free on the ground support with WA Plastic Free to help in this transition.
