Say Yes to the Cash for Containers Deposit Scheme
KEEP THE SUPPORT COMING!
As we await the outcome of the Decision Regulatory Impact Statement (DRIS), state environment ministers are likely to meet in early December to make a decision on how to stop 8 billion beverage containers being landfilled or littered every year. We have reached a crucial point in the Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) campaign and, with a growing number of state ministers behind it, are now closer than ever to getting a national 10c refund after 10 years of campaigning. CDS is the most popular and proven way to ensure the 15,000 bottles and cans littered PER MINUTE in Australia are properly recycled and kept out of the environment.
The beverage industry is pushing back, but together we can do this. With your support, we can convince environment ministers and premiers that we have waited long enough and SAY YES TO CDS!
Please sign this petition and share with your friends and community. Your support is crucial.
