Subject: [BBAN]: CDL Inquiry report released down under

Independent Review of Container Deposit Legislation (CDL)

On 28 February the NSW Government in Australia released a report 
on the Independent Review of Container Deposit Legislation (CDL)
in New South Wales. An ISF research team at the University of
Technology Sydney, led by Director Dr Stuart White, conducted the 
independent review of CDL for the NSW Environment Minister. The 
review process used a world first in social research methodology 
by combining a citizen's forum and a televote. The report found 
a deposit and refund system on drink containers could provide 
benefits to the community worth $70 million annually and 
recommended a system in which consumers pay a ten cent deposit 
for drink containers, redeemable at retail outlets or a network 
of collection depots. The report covers a broad range of issues, 
drawing on case studies from many overseas CDL systems.  

See the Executive Summary for more information, or down load a 
copy of the full report.

The report can be found on the ISF website www.isf.uts.edu.au
