Kiwis are among the largest generators of plastic waste globally, throwing away an estimated 159 grams of plastic waste each on an average day.
We all know that plastic waste is one of our biggest environmental challenges. It naturally degrades and spreads through land, air and water, and is extremely difficult to remove or treat, especially as it breaks down into the smallest pieces - micro- and nano-plastics
The Government’s plan is to ban certain hard-to-recycle plastics and single-use items through a phased out approach that will take affect between late 2022 to mid 2025. This will result in an estimated two billion single-use items being deferred from our landfills and our environment each year and it will improve New Zealand's recycling system. The phased out approach to banning single use and hard to recycle plastics will encourage businesses and individuals to seek reusable alternatives.
Phase out by mid 2022
