Second Q&A session for retailers, hospitality or suppliers seeking to understand what they need to do to comply with the WA Plastics Ban.



Given an overwhelming response to the 1st session, and a time clash with those attending the B-Cycle webinar, the National Launch of the Battery Stewardship Scheme, a second session has been added. If you would like to swap to the second session, just register below (no need to unregister from the first session).

The new WA ban came into effect 1 January 2022 and enforcement of the ban will start from 1 July 2022.


About us

The National Retail Association has been engaged by the WA Government to assist businesses to understand, manage and comply with the WA Plastics Ban. The NRA team are specialists in plastics bans across Australia, and the implications of these bans for businesses.


Help for businesses

A dedicated website, resources and tours of retail precincts are commencing soon, however we understand that many businesses have pressing queries.

We will be hosting MONTHLY online Q&A sessions leading up to enforcement of the ban, designed for businesses to ask questions and clarify their obligations. The NRA team understand business, and our goal is to provide straightforward answers and practical advice.

All resources and sessions are free.



This session will be held via Zoom on Tuesday 15 February at 1pm AWST (note this is 4pm for Sydney/Melb). 1hr duration.

Who should attend?

  • retailers, hospitality or other businesses impacted by the WA ban
  • manufacturers, suppliers or distributors impacted by the WA ban
  • relevant representative bodies seeking to answer member queries

Please note that the focus of the session is to answer business queries about understanding, managing and complying with the WA ban. WA-based and national businesses are welcome to attend.

We will provide a brief overview of the ban and then focus on answering your questions. If there is time, we can answer questions on bans in other states.

A link to join the Zoom meeting will be sent to you shortly after registration.
