A more than 10 year campaign is coming to a head with Ministers due to meet in April to make a decision on the Containe Deposit Scheme.
With more than 80% of Australian’s consitently supporting this program, it is frustrating that the government has to date refused to support this initiative. Successfully run in SA for more than 30 years, the reduction in beverage containers in the litter stream is evident.
Now it seems that the Victorian Premier Denise Napthine has thrown his support behind the campaign – this article was published in The Age on March 23, 2014.
We urge everyone to show their support for this campaign by emailing NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell and encouraging him to join his Victorian counterpart, which will result in a huge reduction of beverage containers in our environment!
