Closed petition An island deposit return scheme for glass, metal and plastic drink containers
DRS Schemes are already in place and work extremely well in reducing the amount of single use plastic bottles being thrown away. Scotland are bringing a DRS scheme by 2023 and the Government of Jersey should include a similar scheme as part of their island plans.
Deposit Return Schemes have been proven to work across Europe. In fact, in Norway they manage to capture 97% of their single-use plastic bottles through an all-in DRS! This means high-quality plastic material is kept in ‘the loop’ which is much easier to recycle into different products, so less new plastic bottles need to be created. Win-win!
