Why is Will Hodgman dragging his feet? 

Healthy oceans are integral to sustaining life on the planet.

Our beaches, waterways, and roads are covered in rubbish and it’s choking our oceans and wildlife.

Most states have introduced container-deposit-schemes except Victoria and Tasmania.

With a cash-for-containers scheme people would receive a 10c refund for returning bottles and cans for recycling and it will:

  • Decrease the amount of plastic that ends up in our ocean.

  • Help our recycling crisis by separating glass, plastic and aluminium when it’s collected.

  • Return money to individuals and community groups.

TAKE ACTION TODAY - SIGN THE PETITION

I support the introduction of a cash-for-containers scheme to reduce plastic pollution in the oceans and increase recycling in Tasmania.
