    The government has plannned to introduce a deposit return scheme (DRS) for drinks bottles and aluminium cans in England. The report shows that the scheme would create savings for local government.

    Allison Ogden-Newton, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy, one of the members of the consortium, said: “There is no doubt that introducing a deposit refund system would reduce littering in this country but, until now, there has been a concern that it would have a negative impact on cash-strapped councils.

    According to a new report, every day 35 million plastic bottles and 20 million aluminium cans are sold across the UK.

    Samantha Harding, litter programme director at CPRE, said: “There are no longer any valid arguments that deposit refund systems don’t work and the environmental case is crystal clear.

    “For our coasts and countryside, the cost of not taking action will be far greater than any incurred by the parts of industry that are trying to block this.”
