For the plastics export ban transition to be successful, we need local, state and federal Governments to work proactively with the resource recovery sector, writes Rose Read, CEO of the National Waste and Recycling Industry Council.
The 2021 ban on exporting mixed plastics relates to those that are not of a single resin or polymer type or have not been processed into a value- added material.
The ban on exporting single resin or polymer plastics that have not been reprocessed comes into effect in 12 months’ time on 1 July 2022.
