Coke undermining recycling efforts

Recycling

The Conservation Council of WA says Coca-Cola is trying to undermine community efforts to improve re-cycling and tackle litter in WA through meetings with key members of Parliament. Paul Murray spoke to the councils Director Piers Verstegan.

  • a 10cent refund scheme would be great! all those seabirds dying as they eat bits of plastic is terrible and coke bottles are always one of these things you see being littered and ending up in the ocean. coke is like an old dinosaur company fighting against environmental outcomes. maybe we should get a boycott of mt franklin water and their other brands to push them along?

  • Well said Mrs Wettstein!
    South Australia has the refund in place and has for decades. I wish they would bring it in over here. It would help the homeless and kids would also make some pocket money out of it. There would be a lot less rubbish on the side of the roads. Also have to agree with the once a week pick up of the recycle bin as well.

  • I'm All for refunds. I lived in the USA for 5 years and they have recycle centres in the entrances to the Supermarkets. It helps the homeless and also helps reduce rubbish in our state . Which is a BIG problem from which I have heard in WA! Come on everyone! I support recycling now heavily In fact I generally have to squich my recycling bin down, (it could do with being pickjed up weekly not fortnightly in City of Joondalup!) I'd pay an extra 5 cents a can to get it back later on!
