NSW CONTAINER DEPOSIT SCHEME WILL RAISE PRICES AND WILL COST JOBS
The Australian Beverages Council has today reaffirmed that any container deposit scheme will raise prices and will lead to job losses.
“It is concerning that environmental groups are once again spruiking no impact on prices under a container deposit scheme. This is simply not the case. Manufacturers with an intimate knowledge of the supply chain know that prices must rise if a container deposit scheme is introduced. This means NSW families will pay more for their weekly grocery shop” said the Beverages Council’s CEO, Mr Geoff Parker.
