This new fact sheet by the Reloop Platform explains why deposit return systems (DRS), which are in place in over 40 jurisdictions across the world, produce higher circular economy outcomes, including a more positive impact on job creation, than any other waste management option.
The report offers insights on how deposit systems are financed in different jurisdictions and what recovery levels they can achieve depending on how they’re designed.
Reloop releases a new report showing that deposit return systems (DRS) are increasingly being chosen by governments to tackle the growing global crisis of plastic pollution and waste.
The data shows an urgent need for an ‘all-inclusive’ deposit return system (DRS) which is consistent with other DRS across the UK and which includes glass and plastic bottles of all sizes, as well as cans.
The aim of the conference, hosted in Brussels by the European Committee of the Regions, was to bring together governments, DRS operators, experts, producers and technology providers from countries across Europe to offer their expertise on the various components of best in class DRS systems.
Zero Waste Europe has prepared a short primer explaining how deposit systems work and how they can be used to help Europe move towards a circular economy.
Less than 24 hours after Scotland became the first part of the UK to announce details of such a scheme, environmental campaigners across the globe united in an international day of action to urge more countries to adopt a deposit return scheme (DRS) for drinks cans and bottles.
