Western Australians are being encouraged to attend workshops across the State to help guide the next steps in the State Government's action on plastic waste.
From May 20 to July 8, the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) will run 10 workshops to gather ideas from the community and businesses on how to reduce single-use plastics and their impacts on the environment, waste facilities and human health.
It follows the recent release of the 'Let's not draw the short straw - reduce single-use plastics' issues paper and online survey which asks for community feedback.
The issues paper aligns with the whole-of-government target for 'a liveable environment' as part of the State's Our Priorities program to address important issues facing Western Australia.
The single-use plastics workshops will be held regionally in Albany, Bunbury, Kalgoorlie, Geraldton, Karratha, Port Hedland and Broome.
