Already, more than 1.5 million drink containers and bottles have been returned in exchange for 10 cent receipts which can be redeemed for cash or donated to selected charities. In the first two weeks of operation, the Erina Fair reverse vending machine received 125,591 deposits. Since December, the Bateau Bay machine clocked up 653,527 returns, while Lisarow has so far recorded 701,610. Cans, glass bottles and juice boxes are allowed to be cashed in, however milk and wine bottles are not permitted. (VISION ONLY)
The Wallarah 2 Coal Mine has been granted conditional approval by the state Planning Assessment Commission. The independent body has determined that the project IS in the public interest. It also states that the potential impact to the water catchment is minimal, and can be managed through strict controls and requirements. Residents have been fighting this development for more than 20 years. The $800 million dollar underground coal mine is set to create 300 full time jobs.
