We want to know what you think about our proposals to introduce a deposit return scheme for drinks containers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
By creating a deposit return scheme, we want to increase the recycling rate of drinks containers and reduce littering. Introducing such a scheme will help change consumer behaviour to encourage higher levels of drinks container recycling.
We need your views on:
- how a deposit return scheme will operate
- scheme scope and design
- implementation timelines
- scheme enforcement
