Simon Corbell has announced that the ACT is getting on the bandwagon for a national container deposit system (getting a few pennies for every drink bottle you bring back).
Hopefully this is meant (should it not be derailed by a big state that would already have it if they wanted it) to improve recycling rates.
Although Simon notes that South Australia, which has a CDS, has lower recycling rates than we do:
The ACT already recovers 75% of containers which is higher than South Australia at 69% where a container deposit scheme already exists.
