Manufacturers and distributors of beverages sold in containers covered by the Beverage Container provisions of the Environment Protection Act 1993 (more commonly known as Container Deposit Legislation ??? CDL) in South Australia, must obtain approval before the sale of that beverage in South Australia commences.
Applicants must ensure the containers are labelled with the approved refund marking and put in place an affective and appropriate waste management arrangement for the payment of refunds to consumers and the collection and recycling of the containers returned.
Non-compliance may result in the prohibition of beverage container sales, enforcement action including civil and/or criminal proceedings, and the reprinting of labels.
