10¢ re­cy­cling views sought

Midwest Times - - NEWS -

Premier Mark McGowan has asked for com­mu­nity in­put into the Gov­ern­ment’s con­tainer de­posit scheme, which he hopes will cre­ate jobs and re­duce the amount of waste go­ing to land­fill.

The scheme aims to en­cour­age re­cy­cling by of­fer­ing a 10¢ re­fund for in­di­vid­ual empty drink con­tain­ers, in­clud­ing plas­tic and glass bot­tles, pa­per­board car­tons, and steel and alu­minium cans.

Mr McGowan said the scheme could cre­ate up to 500 new jobs across WA.

Any­one can of­fer feed­back by com­plet­ing an anony­mous sur­vey or by email­ing cds@dwer.wa.gov. au by Oc­to­ber 23. The sur­vey is at sur­vey­mon­key.com/r/KQJH8D8.
