‘’The scheme run by COEX has dismally failed to reach its target of 85 per cent recovery by 30 June 2022. It now stands at 62 per cent. Every container refund not recovered is an impost on consumers, already battling cost of living pressures. Tens of millions of dollars are not being returned to households and the scheme must bear some responsibility for this,” said Jeff Angel, Director of the Boomerang Alliance.

This is what happens we the drink manufacturers are allowed to run the scheme.  The less returns the more they make.  Collection has to be independent and based on the more returns the more the collectors get paid.
