TASMANIA: Tell Your Leaders to Introduce Cash for Containers

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 things off in 2012, significantly increasing their recycling rate, with QLD, NSW & ACT following, and WA to follow in 2020.

We want TAS to join the national momentum, and be a leader in protecting our oceans.

Inaction isn’t an option when our oceans are choking on plastic containers. Sign the petition for a Tassie Cash For Containers and turn the tide on plastic pollution today!
