Barriers to beverage industry circularity are complex – AustraliaPosted on February 1, 2022 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
The CDS tide of container scope is turning. As little as four years ago when the NSW scheme was kicked off, the government’s primary objective was to reduce litter. Today there is a nationwide shift to viewing, thinking and forecasting CDS as a strategic asset towards materials’ recovery and supporting all federal and state targets towards recycled content. In short, there is room in a CDS for every type of recyclable packaging.
This would be a great way to reduce plastic waste by consumers. If all the common plastic containers had a refundable deposit on it, then so many more units would be returned to drop off centres for recycling.
