“We cannot stress enough that a successful scheme is one that is accessible, drives recycling, reduces litter, provides a new income stream for Victorians, and creates a remanufacturing sub-sector that uses Australian recycled containers. We can only get there if the inherent conflict of interest associated with higher container return rates – i.e., the more accessible the scheme, the more containers will be returned, leading to increased costs for beverage suppliers – is managed.”

The drinks Industry is trying to sabotage this scheme for their own personal profits.
