Regional Community Information Forums
Boomerang Alliance continues to advise the State Government on the design and rollout of the Container Refund Scheme into Queensland as part of the official Ministerial Advisory Committee. We have also been working with community organisations in Brisbane to help them prepare and make the most of their opportunities under the scheme.
Now, with sponsorship from the State Government and in conjunction with local state MP’s, we are undertaking a regional tour of Queensland to talk to community groups from around the state on how they can be involved and potentially secure a long term and sustainable revenue base through the collection and return of cans and bottles. We will also talk about the plastic bag ban and how this will affect retailers and consumers.
