Balloon, straw and bottle ban at events

Plastic straws, helium balloons and single-use bottles have been banned from all Brisbane City Council operations and events.

Vendors at council-run events will not be able to use the items, however, patrons can still bring the items into events, following a vote on Tuesday night.

"We can't stop people bringing them in," council's environment, parks and sustainability chairman David McLachlan told ABC Radio on Thursday.
