Qld Plastic Ban Tour 2021 - Rockhampton



From September 1, 2021, certain single-use plastic items will be banned in Qld, including plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery, plates, bowls and expanded polystyrene cups and containers.

As many community groups provide takeaway food and drink as part of their community and fundraising activities, this may affect how you operate. As such, your group may benefit from information on how to comply with the new bans.

To help you prepare, the Qld Government has contracted The Boomerang Alliance* to conduct a series of evening forums across the state to answer your questions on:

  • What items are included in the ban?
  • What alternative products can be used?
  • How can my organisation adapt to comply with the ban?

Forums are held in the evening and consist of a 30 minute presentation followed by a Q&A session. It will include explanations on practices to avoid and reduce packaging, tailored for specific scenarios (e.g. at a sausage sizzle, sports events, holding your own event etc.)

You will be provided with a take-home brief on the ban, a procurement guide, and details of sources for further information.

Locations are listed below and you can register for one of these sessions through the 'Register' link (or through the 'Tickets' link if using the mobile app).  Note that tickets do not need to be printed - just show up!
