Single Use Plastic Product Bill
Published on: 22nd December 2022 | Updated on: 7th November 2023
The Environmental Protection (Single-use Plastic Products) (Wales) Bill (Bill) was passed by the Senedd on the 6 December. Please be aware that the Bill removed the exemption for single-use carrier bags for dispensed products.
Welsh Government have prepared initial awareness raising infographic materials (below) for businesses and disabled people.
For businesses, the information sets out how businesses should prepare for the bans, and for disabled people the information sets out how single-use plastic straws can still be accessed by disabled people who need this product to eat and drink safely and independently.
Additional awareness raising materials will be developed in 2023, as well as comprehensive guidance, developed in collaboration with stakeholders (including CPW). We will provide further information on this in the coming weeks.
