Container Deposits

9 May 2016

The environment finally got some good news with the state government committing to a container deposit system by mid next year. The scheme adds a 10-cent levy to drink containers which gets refunded when it is presented for recycling. We have too much plastic in our environment and container deposits have proven to boost recycling rates. I’ve been pushing for a scheme since my election and I congratulate the government for prioritising community and environment.
