Don't let Coles and Woolies rob you!

Are Coles and Woolworths the new opponents of what the community wants? These major supermarkets are refusing to join Cash for Containers by not providing space within their carparks to allow for consumer refunds. Just when we thought the fight was finally over!

Last year NSW Premier Mike Baird promised a ‘World’s Best Practice’ Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) featuring at least 800 reverse vending machines across the state to make redemption quick and convenient. But because of Coles and Woolworths opposition, the proposed scheme designed by the NSW EPA is way too vague - rather than deploying collection points in every major shopping centre across the state, the EPA has not come up with a concrete plan and the 800 promised RVMs number has disappeared.

Tell Mark Speakman that we won't let Coles and Woolworths take away consumer convenience.

We recently conducted a survey asking you what you thought of the current CDS draft. You told us that you want convenience and agreed that retailers should provide space and information for redeeming your containers.

With the finish line in sight, let these supermarket giants know that you will feel robbed if you cannot redeem your containers while on a shopping trip!

Send your concerns to Mark Speakman and let him know you do not agree with Coles and Woolworths opposing the NSW CDS.

I am counting on you!

Jeff Angel, Director and Convenor

    Lets set up a scheme where schools, sports clubs and community organisations http://www.assignmentpoint.co.uk are the collection sites so these worthy pillars of our community harvest the income from a container deposit scheme.

    What can we expect from the duopoly? However, pressure may work, or else let’s seek community organisations as Don Parry suggests instead. Lets not muddy the waters and involve the supermarkets who sell the cans and bottles in the first place!

    Forget Coles, Woolworths, Hotels etc. They will just find another way to rip us off.
    Lets set up a scheme where schools, sports clubs and community organisations are the collection sites so these worthy pillars of our community harvest the income from a container deposit scheme. Example – I have 20 containers. I am not much interested in the $2 I would get by cashing them in but I would be happy to ‘donate’ at my children’s school or junior sporting club. Leaving the container deposit scheme with the big guys is like leaving Dracula in charge of the blood bank.
