Growing recognition of plastic’s impact on our environment and human health means we need a comprehensive and bold plan to address this important issue.

The discussion paper, Cleaning Up Our Act: Redirecting the Future of Plastic in NSW (released in March 2020) lays the ground work for making NSW a national and global leader in the management of plastics. It sets targets to reduce the amount of plastic we generate, increase recycling rates, reduce plastic pollution and make NSW a global leader in plastic research and solution development.

The NSW Government is consulting with the community and stakeholders before finalising the NSW Plastics Plan. Your views on the targets and priority directions proposed in the discussion paper are highly valued and will inform the development of the NSW Plastics Plan.
