QLD gathers data on rubbish for Container Deposit Scheme – AustraliaPosted on April 19, 2016 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Queensland government is looking in garbage trucks to analyse what’s being thrown out to inform a future Container Deposit Scheme.
“The Palaszczuk Government is also closely watching the CDS discussions in NSW where the Government has committed to introducing a CDS by 2017,” Dr Miles said.
He said if the Queensland government does decide to introduce a container deposit scheme, it would be desirable that the two schemes are consistent in their key design elements.
Lets hope Qld can do the right thing too and get these far too many litter cans and bottles out of our ocean, parks and off roadsides. Plus the 70% approx. that get dumped to landfill and not recycled. That is a large resource lost our economy is facing.
