Joan Pereira on Resource Sustainability Bill

(Updated: )

MP Joan Pereira applauded the move to work with retailers and suppliers to collect and dispose of unwanted consumer and non-consumer products. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Sep 4) on the Resource Sustainability Bill, she raised concerns on the increased costs that will be incurred in labour and the transportation of the products. She asked if the process of collecting and disposal of such items can be made more affordable for businesses and whether more can be done to help businesses take advantage of economies of scale.
