With the volume of litter in VIC higher than the national average and drink containers making up more than 40%, we know it's time to act now.

Last month we held an inspiring meeting in Melbourne with community groups about our successes with container deposit schemes in SA, NT, NSW, QLD. These groups are ready to campaign.  We need Minister Lily Ambrosio to support the proven refund scheme.

But she's not convinced yet. We think a petition of 20,000 people will make her think twice about blocking this community-led action.

We are committed to bringing a Container Deposit Scheme to Victoria. It is only the beginning of the battle and we already have over 3,000 signatures, but to make our message really heard we want to promote this image on Facebook to put the thousands of voices right on Minister Ambrosio's desk.

Together we can clean up Victoria - on track to becoming Australia’s dirtiest state. 10c for every bottle and every can – it just makes cents!  

Thank you for all that you do.
