    Ask the Victorian Government to adopt a world class container deposit scheme

    Victoria is the ONLY state that has yet to commit to a Container Deposit Scheme (CDS). Every other state either has a scheme or will get one soon. We are missing out on an estimate $50 million a year in fundraising to community groups and charities.

    The Boomerang Alliance has joined forces with Victorian community organisations and groups to push for action. The Victorian government originally was defending inaction on CDS with questionable statistics on litter and recycling rates. We took actions to dispel myths, raise awareness and presented the true cost of inaction. The feedback we get from the community is that of overwhelming support for a CDS. Yet, the Victorian government remains recalcitrant, saying they are "monitoring and evaluating" how schemes progress in other states.

    Newsflash: It's going really well! NSWs 'Earn and Return' collected 2 billion containers in 19 months and increased recycling rates from 35% to over 65% (June 2019). QLDs 'Containers For Change' has collected over 620 million containers in 8 months. Hundreds of jobs have been created and hundreds of charities are benefiting.

    We want Victoria to become active NOW and commit to a container deposit scheme, harmonised with other states!

    SO, WHAT CAN YOU DO?

    • Sign this petition to Lily D'Ambrosio asking for a CDS

    • Sign up to our campaign and join us in clean-ups, media stunts and other actions

    HOW DOES A CONTAINER DEPOSIT SCHEME WORK?

    A container deposit scheme is based on a refundable deposit able to be redeemed by the consumer or collectors at convenient locations. In other words, people get cash for recycling their containers. There are over 40 such systems around the world including in South Australia, the Northern Territory, the ACT, NSW and Queensland. WA and Tasmania are planning to follow suit in 2020 and 2022, respectively. Victoria needs to commit NOW!

    Dear Ms D'Ambrosio,

    I support the introduction of a 10 cents refundable deposit on bottles and cans in VICTORIA. Newspolls results (conducted in June 2018) show that I am not alone – 84% of Victorians agree.

    Victoria is now the LAST state to commit to a container deposit scheme. Cash for Containers has led to a significant increase in recycling rates in all states that it's been implemented in. NSW report an increase from 35% to over 65% (June 2018, EPA NSW). The scheme is also going well in NT, the ACT and QLD. And of course, SA has had it for decades. Why are we the only state left out?

    The Senate Inquiry into Marine Plastic Pollution recommended State Governments introduce a Container Deposit System by 2020 or Federal action may be warranted. According to the National Litter Index, two thirds of plastic litter volume in Victoria is drink container litter - why are you waiting to introduce a scheme that you know is proven to reduce litter rates? 

    I support a modern, efficient, convenient and low-cost container deposit system. The social and economic benefits include more jobs in resource recovery and a new source of income for charities. The SA scouts report $15 million a year of income from CDS - why are Victorian charities and community groups still missing out?

    CDS can also help with the recycling crisis, as it produces reliable streams of sorted, uncontaminated materials that are of higher value and can underpin a local recycling industry. That's why the vast majority of councils support the call for a CDS, including their representative bodies, the MAV and LGVA. When will you answer that call?

    I call on you to introduce a 10 cents refundable deposit on bottles and cans in VICTORIA – to reduce the litter and increase the recycling of beverage containers.

    Yours sincerely,

    Historic opportunity to ban plastic bags!

    $20,995.00 raised
    GOAL: $22,000.00

    Did you know that 52% of the world's sea turtles have ingested plastic or other human rubbish? Last year, the Australian Senate Inquiry into marine plastic pollution warned of a ‘looming health crisis’ from eating seafood and ingesting the bioaccumulation of plastic and adhered toxic chemicals. This has to stop!

    At the end of June, the environment ministers will be coming together for their regular meeting. We want their main focus to be a ban on lightweight single use plastic bags throughout Australia. In order for this to happen, we need to urgently mobilise and support our 50 allied plastic bag-free groups.

    Please chip in today to help us win, it would save countless turtles, whales, birds and other marine life from harm.
