 Deposit return scheme
Topic Originator: wee eck  
Date:   Fri 26 Apr 18:40

This was announced the other day with barely a murmur :-

`A UK deposit return scheme for recycling drinks bottles has been delayed to 2027, meaning it will not be in place until almost a decade after it was proposed. Campaigners say the delay is a “huge disappointment”, adding they are doubly dismayed that the plan will not include glass bottles.

The environment minister Robbie Moore told parliament on Wednesday that the scheme would not include glass because glass recycling would “create undue complexity for the drinks industry and it increases storage and handling costs for retailers”. Large drinks companies have been lobbying the government to remove glass from the scheme across the UK.

He said the delay was because additional time was needed to synchronise the policy of the devolved administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales with that in England. Scotland has agreed to remove glass from its scheme after being asked to by the UK government, but Wales is still including it.`


They were quick enough to veto the proposed Scottish scheme but show no urgency about a UK-wide scheme.

The veto of the Scottish scheme was an utter embarrassment. The UK is run by complete morons. How anyone can ever vote Tory is beyond me. They`re absolute fannies.

No doubt they`re spinning up some waste firms in their in-laws names to get the recycling handling contracts.

I wonder if the UK scheme is also set up like the Scottish one where it only works if enough people don`t return their containers?

And although my eyes were open
They just might as well be closed

Did they try to estimate the required capacity so as to not overspent on provision?

I hope so.

Ireland 🇮🇪 is an independent country where Scotland is a region within the UK 🇬🇧 with guidelines to follow.

Vote SNP and they`ll deliver the benefits that Ireland 🇮🇪 enjoys.

Independent Ireland went bust and UK helped to bail them out.

They are a region in the EU with guidelines to follow....
