Premier Mike Baird asked to take ACTION on CDL

Mike Aldrige, who is a member of the CRVA and an active Mudcrab, took some photos of the thousands of bottles deposited onto the foreshore of the Cooks River, following the flash flood on 21st October. These bottles are only a fraction of the many thousands of plastic bottles that would have been washed out to the ocean after this flood.




Mike sent a copy of these photos to the Premier of NSW demanding that the State Government support the introduction of Container Deposit Legislation, as the most effective method of reducing the dumping of bottles into the Cooks River and our other waterways.
