The Journey to Battery Stewardship

The journey to establishing a battery stewardship scheme began in 2013, with momentum shifting into higher gear in 2018 with a clear direction and the design of a draft scheme. 2019 is the time for this planning to move into the implementation phase. The scheme design is close to being finalised and once complete will form the basis of an application to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for scheme authorisation. The illustration below shows the pivotal activities that have occurred along the way.
