We want a comprehensive bottle refund scheme for Aotearoa
April 2022: The government has finally acted and a CRS has been proposed as part of wider recycling reforms and public consultation is happening now.
The proposed scheme IS comprehensive as we asked: it includes all materials (glass, plastic, metal, liquid paperboard), and all beverage types.
Now the focus of the campaign shifts: we need to make as many submissions to the government's proposal as possible by May 8. This will further encourage the government to implement a comprehensive, equitable, Tiriti-led scheme, that delivers maximum impact to the community and environment.
