Making cents

Bottle driveYou know that bit on the back of the bottle about getting a 10c refund in South Australia? Well, there’s a new campaign to get a recycling refund system here in New Zealand too. The Great Kiwi Bottle Drive wants to bring back a 10c recycling refund for all beverage containers (including glass and plastic bottles, and cans).

We know that recycling refunds push up beverage container recycling rates to 85% (ours is currently 40%) and drastically reduce litter. If you think it’s a good idea, sign the petition here.
