It’s time for Australia to take real action to stop 8 billion drink containers ending up as landfill or littering our beaches, rivers and oceans each year. Cash for Containers – which places a 10 cent fully refundable deposit on drink containers – is the most effective solution.
All around Australia there’s a groundswell of support. Cash for Containers has real and lasting benefits. 85% of Australians want it now! South Australia has been doing it successfully for almost 40 years. The Northern Territory kicked it off in 2012, significantly increasing their recycling rate. NSW & ACT started theirs this year, with QLD and WA to follow later on in 2018.
Take action and tell the Premier, Opposition Leader and Environment Minister to join the momentum and introduce Cash for Containers to take plastic off the plate for our marine life!
