At last the Victorian Government is proceeding with a container deposit scheme! They are seeking your views on key elements. Importantly they have endorsed the 'split governance' approach which we have been advocating. This stops the big beverage companies managing all the collection points and creating a system that won't achieve the best recycling and environmental outcomes. Coke and Lion Drinks are mounting a major campaign to overturn the decision.
