Deposit-Returns Needed in Ontario!

WHEREAS Disposable Beverage Containers:
     - contribute to waste problems in Ontario;
     - litter streets, parks and waterways; and
     - burden municipal taxpayers with costs to collect, and
       market/dispose of them; and

WHEREAS Deposit/Return programs:
     - prevent litter and result in higher diversion rates;
     - provide a financial reward to people for returning
     - generate good quality materials that can benefit
       industry and increase jobs; and
     - make producers/consumers financially responsible for
       containers they make/use (instead of all taxpayers).

WE, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:

Require producers and/or first importers of all beverage containers to implement a deposit/return program, which will provide an appropriate reward to encourage people to return beverage containers to local outlets or depots, similar to the successful program provided by The Beer Store.
