Public support for deposit return systems

By the end of 2022, it is expected that over 350 million people will live in jurisdictions with deposit return systems (DRS) in place for the collection and recycling of single-use drinks containers. And according to our knowledge of programmes that are committed to but not yet operational, it’s reasonable to predict that this could increase to nearly 750 million people by the end of 2026, when it’s expected that more than 70 jurisdictions worldwide will have a DRS (up from 48 in 2020).

This fact sheet represents a compilation of results from over 100 public opinion polls gathered on a global scale over the last 20 years (2003-2022). The data focuses on public attitudes and opinions towards deposit return legislation in over 20 countries.
