Last year, Premier Mike Baird and the Minister for the Environment, Mark Speakman promised NSW would get the worlds best container deposit system featuring at least 800 reverse vending machines across the state to make redemption quick and convenient. But Coles and Woolworths are not playing the game and have refused to provide space within their carparks to allow for consumer refunds.
Because of them, 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 - That's just not good enough!
Make your voice count! Tell Mark Speakman below that the EPA should require major supermarkets to provide a place for consumers to conveniently redeem their containers to ensure NSW gets a Worlds Best Practice!
