On the 17th of August 2016, the Hon. Premier Colin Barnett MLA and Hon. Albert Jacob MLA Minister for Environment & Heritage announced a container deposit scheme for W.A. This will allow consumers to be able to return eligible drink cans and bottles for recycling and claim a 10 cent refund for each container. It’s an initiative that brings us in line with other States. In South Perth I am proud of the recycling and clean up initiatives that our constituents already do, but for organisations such as Rotary, it will now give them the opportunity to recycle and raise funds for worthy causes.
