From: Department of Health

The Government Decision of January 2019 on Actions by Departments and Agencies on Single Use Plastics, Prevention of Waste and Green Public Procurement has determined that government departments will not purchase single-use plastics, beverage cups, cutlery and drinking straws, directly or indirectly, after 1 January 2019 except where specific public health/hygiene or safety issues arise.

The Government Decision also introduced the requirement for Resource Efficiency Action Plans (REAP) to be prepared by departments.
