Better Together: How a Deposit Return System Will Complement Ontario’s Blue Box Programme and Enhance the Circular Economy

A report by Reloop, produced in 2019 in partnership with Eunomia Research & Consulting, outlines how the introduction of a deposit return system (DRS) would increase recycling rates and reduce litter in Ontario, Canada. The report also identifies how harmonisation with Ontario’s current Blue Box programme and DRS on alcohol beverages, would provide benefits to the system as a whole. The study examines the costs of the proposed programme, as well as detailing the environmental, social and economic benefits that would be delivered.
