Review of the Operations of the Container Deposit Scheme
The NT Government is inviting comments on the Northern Territory Container Deposit Scheme.
The Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) commenced in January 2012 to help reduce litter, increase recycling and help reduce the amount of waste being disposed to landfill. Under the CDS, anyone can take eligible beverage containers purchased in the Northern Territory to an approved Collection Depot and obtain 10 cents refund per container. The CDS is a great way for community groups, sporting clubs, schools and other organisations to raise funds.
Under the Environment Protection (Beverage Containers and Plastic Bags) Act, a review is to be conducted every five years from the commencement of the CDS.
Participating in the survey gives you an opportunity to contribute to improvements in consumer experience with CDS, and the environmental and community benefits that could come from improving access/operations of CDS.

Coastal and Marine Management Strategy
The NT Government is inviting comments on the suggested goal and management principles, the specific objectives and the desired outcomes. The strategy will be based on extensive partner and public consultation and is due to be finalised in 2018.
A Discussion Paper has been prepared as part of the public consultation process. It has been prepared in consultation with key partners and stakeholders. The Minister for the Environment and Natural Resources invited representatives from organisations representing Traditional Owners, industry, conservation, recreation, academia and natural resource management to form a Partnership Group to assist in developing the Strategy. The Partnership Group and seven NT Government agencies held a two day workshop in Darwin to develop a goal, management principles and a series of objectives and long-term outcomes across a spectrum of interrelated environmental, cultural, social and economic themes.
