Single-use Plastic Policy

Single-use plastics? There are better choices!

Often, we opt for single-use plastics out of habit, even though we know how bad they are for our precious environment.

Mornington Peninsula Shire is changing that. As an organisation, we are phasing out the use of single-use plastics in our offices, halls, sporting clubs, events and Shire managed land.

We have developed a resource kit for community use, and we encourage every Mornington Peninsula resident and business to join us in working towards a single-use plastic free Peninsula by 2023.

This work is part of the Shire's Beyond Zero Waste Strategy.

On 25 August 2020, Council adopted the Single-use plastic Policy.
