The problems and potential solutions for disposable vapes
Amy – a year 12 student and casual bartender – knows way too many people with dead vape stashes under their beds.
While the government is trying to crack down, it doesn’t seem like there will be a solution anytime soon. And in the mean time, recycling trucks and apartments are catching alight with vape batteries gone wrong.
In this episode of Podcast Next Gen, Amy dives into the (un)recyclability of disposable vapes, what the new crackdown could mean, and potential solutions.
