The purpose of this new fact sheet is to provide an update on recent
developments in DDRS, including an update on DDRS trials. We also
look at new research that’s been done to examine the feasibility of
implementing DDRS at scale and summarise some of the key findings.
This fact sheet offers an overview of the new digital elements that are included within the concept of digital deposit return systems (DDRS). We also look at the key questions that need to be addressed before real consideration can be given to incorporating these technologies into a DRS.
A comprehensive summary of over 50 DRSs that are currently in place – including those scheduled to be implemented by the end of
When it comes to the design of a new DRS, one of the key topics of debate is whether the system should adopt a flat-rate (sometimes called ‘fixed-rate) or variable deposit fee.
