Locals Could Be Hit With Higher Recycling Fees Due To Deposit Return Scheme

Waste companies say they're down income since the scheme was brought in last February.

Locals could be facing an increase in recycling bin charges because of the Deposit Return Scheme.

Waste companies say they're down income since the scheme was brought in last February.

Labour Party Senator Marie Sherlock said it's wrong for bin companies to pass their losses on to customers.
