Business recycling tips – new reverse vending initiative in NSW
The New South Wales Government has announced that they will be rolling out a reverse vending machine network for drinks containers – whereby a 10c rebate will be paid for eligible containers. Quoting from the ABC website:
“A new recycling scheme in New South Wales has been hailed by the State Government as the biggest anti-litter initiative in the state’s history.”
“We’re talking about millions of drink containers that litter our streets at the moment, our community will have more opportunity now to do the right thing, to have it be an easy way to do the right thing.”
“More than 800 reverse vending machines will be rolled out across the state, providing customers with a 10 cent refund in exchange for bottles and cans.”
“Most empty 150 millilitre to 3 litre beverage containers will be eligible for a refund, which will be provided in the form of a retail voucher or can be donated to local charities or community groups.”
“If customers prefer cash, they can take the containers to one of 500 collection points instead.”
