FACT & ACTION SHEET – Cash for containers

In this F&A sheet, we will be discussing Cash for Containers, which is a recycling campaign aimed at implementing a Container Deposits System (CDS) across all states in Australia.

In Australia, this system involves paying a 10c deposit, which can be refunded if the container is presented to an authorized recycling facility. It has been successfully implemented in SA for over 30 years, while NT recently adopted this strategy in 2012. However, the larger states of NSW, VIC and QLD have yet to follow.
