Siavash talks enthusiastically about the future of the CDS technology. Why wouldn't he? He's young, enthusiastic, about to start a new chapter in his life in a new country. He wants to contribute, to make his mark.
Arriving in Australia he volunteered at the Campbelltown City Library, because he wanted to contribute to his local community. Now as a member of the CDS staff he wants to impact on the service the Recycling Depot Owners receive from CDS.
Mel McCabe spent many years in the hospitality industry, an industry that produces empty beverage containers.
Now, as the Administration Manager, at Container Deposit Systems, a role she’s held for the last 12 months, she’s a key player in a company that’s focused on recycling those empty beverage containers.
That’s quite a change, from the middle of the chain (produce-use-recycle) to the end of the process.
Resigning from her job to travel Europe with her daughter labels Bernie Pearce as a risk-taker.
How appropriate that she finds herself working in a company that is considered by industry stakeholders as leading edge in the field of beverage container recycling.
