Hi there, I am simply looking at a way to help promote a cleaner Victoria and in turn combat some environmental issues.
I would love anyone and everyone to be united towards resolving some real issues and to get our state government to introduce container deposit schemes in line with EPA standard as other states actively do already. South Australia first introduced this and have done since 1977.
I do not understand why our state hasn’t implemented this scheme as it would benefit our parks, beaches, water ways, our inner city & surrounding suburbs as well as country Victoria.

In south Australia deposit pay up to .10 cents per can or bottle. For this reason I see it having a positive impact on other major issues within the CBD for the homeless. Their needs could be met in a productive way. Sadly homelessness is a very real and very well known issue for our state. 

If we stand united we could turn our state into a litter free place to live and or visit.

 

Please join me in an initiative to eradicate litter, land fill issues, homelessness, to help care for our environment and to get our government to implement a scheme that is long overdue. One that will combat many of our states issues and make it one we can live in proudly.
