With the frustratingly slow progress on establishing nationwide container deposit schemes, some enterprising companies are coming up with the own solutions. The Box Cycle is one such alternative to resorting to landfill. It looks like a vending machine, and can either be used for reuse/refill, or more traditional recycling.

In consultation with Sue, the trees were distributed to 3 Victorian sites, The Otways, Bellarine Peninsula and Mt Worth. [...]
