    Will your organisation support Cash For Containers?

    Be a part of a broad and diverse coalition fighting for Cash for Containers in Victoria.

    Hundreds of community groups, charities and non-profit organisations around Australia added their name to the Cash for Containers campaign and were instrumental in our success in NSW, Queensland and WA. Now it is Victoria's turn - sign on today to endorse the Cash for Containers campaign in Victoria and help make Australia litter free.

    Our Cash for Containers model is based on the best examples in the world and has benefits for the entire community, economy and environment. Read more about our model here and the benefits for your organisation here.

    Whether you’re a local neighbourhood group, a major environmental NGO, a student organisation, school, small business or any other type of group, we’d love your support. If you are not part of any organisation, you can still support us by signing up here

    WE SUPPORT BOOMERANG ALLIANCE’S CASH FOR CONTAINER MODEL BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IT WOULD HAVE SEVERAL BENEFITS FOR VICTORIA 

    A 10-cent refundable container deposit scheme (cash for containers) will slash the amount of litter polluting our parks, streets, rivers and oceans. It will create jobs in recycling and provide valuable sources of income for charities, community groups and individuals interested in collecting cans and bottles.

    We demand that Victoria acts now and adopts a container deposit scheme in line with what NSW started in December 2017, Queensland in November 2018 and which will commence in Western Australia early 2020. The time to act is NOW!

    Great work WA. A much needed scheme over there too. We look forwards to your foresight spreading to Victoria who looks like it will be the last state to admit this is a much needed scheme and the needs of the environment and the people are bigger than a few corporations.
