SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (July 26, 7 a.m. ET) — Although some Australian cities, local councils and three states and territories have banned single-use plastic bags, Sydney-based Planet Ark Environmental Foundation Ltd. says other states are waiting for Australia’s Federal Government to act. Planet Ark recycling campaigns manager Janet Sparrow said many Australian councils have been working for years to help communities go "plastic bag-free" by banning single-use, non-compostable bags. However, many states are disinclined to introduce material-specific waste regulations without a federal framework.
