Information for retailers

WA’s plastic bag ban will affect all retailers – from grocery and fast food stores to fashion boutiques and pharmacies – currently using light-weight plastic bags, including biodegradable, compostable, and degradable plastic bags.

The WA State Government has partnered with the National Retailer Association (NRA) to help support retailers to comply with the ban and find alternatives for their customers.

The NRA has developed a dedicated website for WA retailers. It has detailed information about the ban, outlines key steps to manage the ban's implementation, provides a schedule of more than 100 retailer workshops and has a range of resources including staff training kits and signage to help retailers adapt to the ban.
