Plastic Wise Merri-bek
Council is committed to reducing single-use plastics in line with global concern about the impact plastic pollution has on our waterways, and marine environment.
Council developed a Plastic Wise Policy in April 2019. Its aim is to transition Council facilities, services and events away from single-use plastic, and to promote alternative products.
Council is working with sports clubs to transition to the Plastic Wise Policy.
As part of the Plastic Wise Policy, Council requires all events and festivals within Merri-bek to replace single-use plastics with alternative products.
Programs, information and advice for businesses wanting to reduce single use plastics.
We have partnered with Boomerang Alliance to support food retail businesses reduce single-use plastic packaging including coffee cups, takeaway containers and straws.
