Here in SA we are pretty proud of our Container Deposit Scheme (CDS), which has been around since 1977.

Originally introduced to reduce littering, bottles and cans now make up less than 3% of litter, with over 75% of the beverage containers sold in SA returned to depots across the state.

In fact, the scheme has been so successful, in 2006 it was awarded the status of State Heritage Icon! 👏

Today is the first day of the South Australian Single-use Plastics Ban 🥳 This means that from today onwards, single-use plastic straws, cutlery, and stirrers cannot be supplied or sold within the state. If you notice your local cafe or takeaway store is still stocking these items, it might be worth a gentle reminder to help them avoid a fine!

Remember exemptions apply regarding straws for people with health issues or disabilities.

For more information visit www.replacethewaste.sa.gov.au.

If you're a business and need some help, call the Single-use Plastics helpline 1800 844 946, or email sup@sa.gov.au.It's here. Today's the day, March 1, 2021. Single-use Plastics are now banned in South Australia. SA leading the way again - Victoria announced plans to ban the same items as us (but not until 2023).
