The purpose of this visit was to further understand the NSW Container Deposit Scheme and the positive outcomes this scheme has delivered.
On 10 October 2019, TOMRA Cleanaway hosted the Standing Committee on Environment and Planning from the Victorian Parliament Legislative Council.
The Standing Committee is undertaking an inquiry into Victoria’s recycling and waste management systems, and the purpose of this visit was to further understand the NSW Container Deposit Scheme and the positive outcomes the scheme has delivered.
The members were hosted at the Eastern Creek Counting and Sorting Centre, where presentations were made about Return and Earn’s operations and performance. There was also the opportunity for a site inspection covering all parts of the operations at the Counting and Sorting Centre.
In attendance from TOMRA Cleanaway were James Dorney, David Hill and Vesna Davidovic, as well as Frank Sufferini representing Cleanaway and Ryan Buzzell and Brent Murray from TOMRA.

For TOMRA Cleanaway and JV Partners, this represented an extremely valuable opportunity to engage with the Standing Committee on Environment and Planning from the Parliament of Victoria, and present and discuss the operations and achievements of the NSW Container Deposit Scheme – Return and Earn.
