Livingstone Shire community first to publicly back cash for containers in Queensland

Over 250 residents of the Livingstone Shire community cleaned litter from the beach and gathered in support of a Cash for containers scheme on Yeppoon on Saturday 28 November. They were joined by Plastic Bag Free Ambassador, Bob Irwin, State MP for Keppel, Brittany Lauga, Mayor of Livingstone, Bill Ludwig, local legend Alby Wooler (who won the 2015 Queensland Leadership in Sustainability Award) and Assistant Regional Commissioner of Scouts in Central Queensland, Dwayne Kersey

Toby Hutcheon from Boomerang alliance formally launched the C4C campaign in Central Qld and Plastic Bag Free Livingstone launched a State Parliament e-petition in support of cash for containers.

'Livingstone Shire is the first place in Queensland where community organisations, the local State MP and the local Shire Council have all come together to back a cash for containers scheme in Queensland. With polling showing that 85% of Queenslanders support cash for containers, we now look forward to other communities following the Livingstone lead.’
said Toby Hutcheon from Boomerang Alliance.
