The campaign to make sure NSW gets the world-class container deposit system is in full swing. We’re down to the last few weeks before the government decides whether to step up to the plate and really do something to tackle the pollution caused by discarded drink bottles and cans. Mike Baird and his advisors are currently reading through the 11,000+ submissions supporters like you have written in support of Cash for Containers.
They will come to a final decision between two options: our best-practice model, Cash For Containers, or Coke’s alternative proposal “thirst for good” – that only targets 3% of litter.
We have to keep the pressure on, and make sure our politicians make the right decision. The NSW outcome will be the trigger for other state governments to act.
That’s why we’ve been at Parliament House in Sydney, inviting MPs from all parties to come and try out the reverse vending machine (RVM) that would be part of the Cash For Containers system.
We’ve made a short video to showcase the RVM we had there on the day. It’s the fastest in the world – as well as easy to use. Even the MPs love it!
It’s the world’s best we want when NSW gets its container deposit system – not the dodgy alternative that Coke and the drinks industry are pushing harder than ever behind the scenes.
It’s vital that as many voices as possible speak up and tell our politicians that NSW deserves a world-class container deposit system that the community supports, not an substandard scheme pushed by big business.
Again, thank you so much for your help.
