Victorian Premier Denis Napthine backs cash-for-cans recycling scheme – AustraliaPosted on March 25, 2014 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Premier Denis Napthine is quietly lobbying his NSW counterpart to join forces with Victoria to consider a cash-for-cans scheme across several states.
High-level talks between the Premier’s office and the O’Farrell government have taken place in recent weeks in a bid to garner support for a container deposit system, despite ongoing industry resistance. If such a plan were to be implemented, consumers could receive a 10¢ deposit for every can and bottle they returned to a recycling depot, as they do in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Let us all hope this goes through is spite of misleading and false information being spread by drink bottle companies.
