Cash-back offer for containers to reduce litter
THE NSW Government is set to introduce a 10 cent refund scheme in a bid to reduce litter across the state.
The scheme will apply to most drink containers between 150ml and three litres, which will display CDS labelling.
“Giving people a financial incentive to do the right thing and recycle drink containers will help to significantly reduce the estimated 160 million drink containers littered every year,” NSW Premier Mike Baird said.
Deputy Premier Troy Grant said individuals and community groups across the state could benefit from the scheme.
“This scheme will allow volunteer and sporting groups to raise much-needed funds to continue their great work in our communities,” he said.
