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. Included in the fact sheet is a table summarizing the key findings of 13 studies and reports that examined the job impacts of implementing or expanding a DRS for beverage containers. Despite differences in scope and methodology, every study shows that DRSs not only have a positive impact on the environment, but on jobs as well.
Deposit Return Systems Create More Jobs
The research cited in this document provides a compelling case for increasing beverage container recovery rates through DRS.
