Plastic Wise Policy

Council's draft Plastic Wise Policy has been released for public comment. 

The Council is proud of Benalla Rural City’s environment. Plastic pollution is harmful to our local wildlife and soft plastics can have long lasting, detrimental effects on our environment.

The Council is committed to minimising, and wherever possible eliminating single use plastic items in Council operations and at Council managed events.

The Policy will encourage responsible procurement practices, influence supply chains and improve awareness on single-use plastics from the procurement phase, to use, and finally, to disposal.

Feedback on the policy can be made until Wednesday 12 May 2021.
