This will change the way you look at recycling

BY GREENPEACE

It’s good for the planet, good for jobs, and would save local governments millions of dollars every year. These are just some of the reasons why our politicians should implement a national 10 cent refund-recycle scheme.

‘Cash for Containers’ has been operating for decades in South Australia, where recycling rates are more than double those across Australia. Other countries with similar schemes boast rates of over 95%. It’s the sensible solution to prevent plastic pollution littering our beaches and clogging up our waterways.

The majority of State Premiers across Australia have shown support for the scheme, but a handful of beverage industry giants like Coca-Cola are doing all they can to get it scrapped.

Sharing these simple facts far and wide will help make this scheme a reality. Read on and share this with everyone.
