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. QLD, NSW & ACT have introduced theirs, with WA to follow in 2019 and TAS in 2021.
That leaves VIC as the nations laggard! Instead, VIC can 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 Victorian Cash For Containers and turn the tide on plastic pollution today!
