Victoria to Finally get a Cash for Containers scheme

The reward program collects drink bottles and cans from commercial industry and consumers, who could recoup 10¢ per drink by returning containers to a drop-off point.

The scheme will be made public within the month, but it won’t be operational until 2023.

The delay was attributed to a need for further consultation with industry and councils on the scheme’s roll-out to avoid issues such as cannibalising kerbside recycling programs and determining what the end product of the recycled material would be.
