Fish’n’Change for Cans
This morning we met eco-friendly artist David Day, the guru who created the fish on display today in King George Square.
He’s helping to raise awareness of Queensland’s new container recycling scheme.
As a state, we’re great at many things. But when it comes to recycling, Queensland can do a lot better. In fact, we have one of the lowest recycling rates in Australia, at around 44%.
Each year, about 3 billion drink containers are made in Queensland, and they are our second most-littered item.
To help us all improve our recycling and keep Queensland litter-free, Containers for Change scheme gives people a 10 cent refund for each eligible container returned to a container refund point.
The scheme commences 1 November 2018, with more than 230 refund sites available, and more sites to be added in future. To find your local container refund point click here > https://bit.ly/2OBgLUq.
