The Kiwi Bottle Drive is a campaign calling for Bottle Deposits in Aotearoa NZ.

It has been created by Cash for Containers NZ and the NZ Product Stewardship Council. It also builds on work by the Community Recycling Network, Envision and others. The Entrust Foundation has been a significant funder of the campaign, along with other generous businesses and individuals.

Much of our work is informed by the 2015 report: The Incentive to Recycle: A Container Deposit System for New Zealand (2015).

We have three people working part time on the campaign –Holly Dove (Campaign Coordinator), Rowan Brooks  (Campaign Support) and Warren Snow (Finance and Research) alongside an up-and-coming network of volunteers and supporters.

We are independently funded and are always looking for one-off donations and ongoing funding.
