container deposit legislation gets support at mav

It was great to learn that the motion I put up for consideration at the MAV State Council was approved by the majority of local governments across Victoria.

Back in March this year, I moved a motion for Yarra Ranges to support Container Deposit Legislation (see blog) to let both the state and federal governments know about our support to see this scheme implemented.

Further to this, my motion also wanted us to forward a motion to the MAV to get the support of local councils across the state. The MAV is one of the peak bodies for local government in Victoria.

The motion:
That the MAV support the introduction of a broad based packaging/container recovery scheme supported by legislation; integrating initiatives such as Container Deposit Legislation.

There are enormous environmental and economic benefits to a container deposit scheme, it's pleasing that the MAV will now be advocating this on behalf of councils across Victoria.
