A container deposit scheme is due to come into effect in New South Wales on 1 December, but Deputy Premier John Barilaro wants Premier Gladys Berejiklian to delay its introduction. Under the scheme, consumers get a refund of $A0.10 for each container they take back to collection points or reverse vending machines. However, Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton has been accused of failing to ensure that there are enough collection points available, particularly in regional areas, despite consumers already being charged at least $A3 more for a carton of beer.
