    IDS clearing the way for Hallam’s Container Deposit Scheme

    Industrial Demolition Services (IDS) recently completed works at the Re.Group Hallam facility to make way for the highly-anticipated Container Deposit Scheme.

    This ambitious project aims to promote recycling and reduce litter across the state, aligning with the Victorian Government’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

    The Container Deposit Scheme, often referred to as a ‘Cash for Containers’ program, is designed to encourage Victorians to return beverage containers for recycling by offering a monetary incentive. The scheme has gained widespread support for its potential to reduce landfill waste and increase recycling rates.

    The project involved the removal of redundant equipment to create space for the construction of recycling facilities and collection points. By making way for these crucial components of the Container Deposit Scheme, IDS has played a pivotal role in laying the groundwork for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future for Victoria.

    The Container Deposit Scheme is expected to not only reduce litter but also stimulate job creation within the recycling and waste management sectors. This initiative is a significant step towards a cleaner and greener Victoria.

    Recycling facilities are expected to be fully operational by late 2023, and IDS is proud to have contributed to the state’s journey towards a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future.
