Fearing Kramer

Kramer lives on, and you can’t even blame Shimon Peres for it.

Concerns have been raised that a Seinfeld-style scheme will be attempted by interstate residents after the State Government announced the recycling levy would be doubled.

Premier Mike Rann yesterday said the levy would be 10c for each bottle or can later this year.

It has prompted warnings that Victorian and New South Wales residents – who do not pay a deposit on containers – will copy television show Seinfeld’s character Kramer who drove a mail truck filled with recyclable containers interstate to collect a 10c levy.

In the episode, Kramer’s partner in crime Newman works out a formula that ensures the scheme is profitable taking into account fuel, tolls and truck rental fees.

No other Australian state offers a refund on containers and interstate recyclers have previously targeted SA recycling depots located near the border.
