Greens MLC Colleen Hartland continues her campaign for a 10c refund on bottles, cans and cartons.
A Victorian Cash for Containers plan will save taxpayer money, create new jobs and save the environment. Benefits of a Victorian scheme include:
South Australia and the Northern Territory already have 10cent refund on bottles and cans, and Tasmania is considering similar schemes. In the absence of National action, the Greens will continue to push for a Victoiran scheme. All these states acting together will make a big difference by reducing marine plastics and helping to protect our environment.
