NSW Container Deposit Scheme

The NSW Environmental Protection Authority is calling for public submissions on the NSW Government’s proposed container deposit scheme.

Two documents have been released for comment: the draft Waste and Resource Recovery Amendment (Container Deposit Scheme) Bill 2016 and a Regulatory Framework Discussion Paper.

Container deposit schemes are just one of a raft of laws and policies that can reduce plastic waste. For more context, read our blog How can we stem the tide of a plastic-polluted future?, by EDO NSW Senior Policy & Law Reform Solicitor Nari Sahukar

Submissions are invited until Wednesday 21 September 2016.
