There's confidence from across the ditch in the Government's new recycling scheme.

It's proposing a raft of changes to plastic recycling, including standardising kerbside recycling around the country and a container return scheme like those used in other countries.

Boomerang Alliance Executive Director Jeff Angel, who's in Australia, told Mike Hosking he expects the scheme to work just as well here as it does there.

“The types of arrangements that New Zealand is proposing are some of the best in the world, so I think that container refund proposal is going to be terrific.”
