Letter of support

 

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 will start in December 2017, Queensland in July 2018 and which is promised by both sides of politics in Western Australia. The time to act is NOW!
