Container deposit scheme debacle

I’m writing to highlight the complete failure of the state government’s new bottle recycling program in the Peakhurst area.

There are only two collections sites on the recycling website in the Peakhurst – Lugarno area and both no longer accept bottles.

After accumulating bottles at home, my grandchildren have been unable to recycle them so I now have several boxes of bottles that have to be disposed of in the yellow bins.

In short we are now paying a 10 cent impost on every bottle for what? 

The is no change to recycling processes.  Who gets the 10 cents?

The rubbish collectors or is it just another tax?

The concept is great but it has been very poorly executed.

Good one Gladys!
