Bottle deposit scheme plan alarms councils


Plastic bottles, cans, tins and glass bottles are all easily recyclable and we already have the infrastructure in the UK to deal with collecting these materials; its the hard-to-recycle plastics that the Government needs to focus on i.e. black plastic food trays, bubble wrap etc. Introducing a deposit scheme in the UK will cost a fortune. Why not legislate to eliminate single-use plastics from packaging. Surely that's the way forward.
