Quest for a national container deposit scheme rolls onPosted on August 31, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Seems the politicians have backed off and put on hold for yet another year for the decision to introduce a national container deposit scheme (CDS) for Australia. The reasons they provided are not clear. Big business has lobbied against this so maybe that is the deciding factor.
Anyway it means another year of high volumes of littered plastic drink bottles across Australia. People who would have had jobs at the recycling stations will not have that work. Community groups who would have been fitted from bottle drives will not get those benefits.
