My constituency question is for the Minister for Environment in the other place, and I ask: how will the Andrews Labor government’s container deposit scheme, starting in November this year, be implemented within the Glen Waverley district? I spoke with one of my constituents back in December, and he was excited about the possibility of a container deposit scheme and what it means for Victoria. I was pleased to inform him last month of the announcement of the date of our implementation of this world-class scheme. The container deposit scheme will turn drink containers into new recycled products, reduce Victoria’s litter by up to half and create over 600 jobs. There will be more than 600 collection points across the state, making it accessible for all Victorians. This scheme builds on the government’s $515 million investment to transform the state’s waste and recycling sector. I know that my constituents and I will be looking forward to the response to this question.
