We are welcoming the change to the start date of the NSW Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) to the 1st of December 2017 as good policy and congratulated the government on listening to the many requests for more time to rollout a better serviced scheme.
We fought long and hard for a CDS to achieve significant environmental benefits. We understand that it is a very complicated process to get it up and running to ensure there is sufficient infrastructure and all contracts are in place to provide an efficient scheme that will work for all of us. It’s better to delay by a few months in order to improve public access and consequently acceptability, of the CDS.
We'll keep you updated.
Jeff Angel, Director
