Refunds will be offered on drink containers between 150ml and three litres but not for most milk and juice cartons and plastic bottles.

Also aiming to tackle litter is Border IGA supermarket owner Bob Mathews who is set to seek feedback on a plan to phase out plastic bags at his Jindera store.

It would be a lot easier for all, the public and the drink companies if the State of Victoria put partisan politics aside for once and implemented the scheme to catch up to all the other states.  The previous state government was going to do it, but this new Labour government is saying no.   We wonder what is or who is pulling their strings when the scheme has overwhelming support.
