The Government has released the Consultant’s report on aModel Framework for a Container Refund Scheme in Tasmania.

In recent years, there has been considerable focus on container deposit systems (CDS) at both the State and National level.The Tasmanian Government provided funding in the 2017-18 Budget to develop a model framework for implementing a Container Deposit Scheme in Tasmania that would complement similar schemes in other States and Territories.

Marsden Jacob Associates (MJA) were subsequently engaged to undertake the study and provide a report to the State Government.
