AFROCAB (Australians for Refunds on Cans and Bottles)
AFROCAB (Australians for Refunds on Cans and Bottles) represents the views of Australians who want something done about the growing number of cans and bottles that litter our country. They believe that the only proven solution to this problem, is a can and bottle refund system.
Over the last 12 months they carried out 121 roadside litter surveys in Victoria and South Australia. They wanted to find out how many drink containers litter Victoria’s roadsides and whether there are as many along South Australia’s roadsides which has a refund.
- Drink containers are about 50% of all roadside litter in Victoria.
- Surveys found 170 drink containers per kilometre along Victoria’s rural roads and highways.
