 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....

Biff(a)... Baff... Boff....

Don`t even think they needed to go into coalition with the Greens?

Have the SNP not got more MSPs this time than the 2016-21 session?

Maybe they should sue the UK government. It was they who stopped the scheme.

I can not recall promising to tell you the route to Independence I don`t know it, but over the last 9 years the political pygmies have repeatedly told you they would deliver it, obviously duping the gullible who`ve repeatedly voted them back into power.

I believe wee Nic went as far as promising us a referendum on 18th September last year. Well how did that turn out.

What actually have these elected reptiles been doing with their time over their period in both parliaments.

Alba are an alternative to the Sham National Party, unfortunately they`ve not been radical enough since formed to make any impact...

The SNP since the Sturgeon years are just a shadow of their former self`s.

Go ask yourself how a Unionist party which was chased out of Scotland 9 years ago with just one MP, now looks like they are going to possibly gain a further 30+ MPs .

Where`s it all gone wrong Eck ,what happened ?

Politics tends to go like that. Fortunes ebb and flow. If things aren`t going well voters give the Opposition parties a chance just because they`re different not because they`re convinced they`ll do any better. Not everyone`s as bitter as you obviously are and they can be won over again.

But carry on with your childish insults and name-calling if that`s your thing.

Hang on, so you`re telling me people vote differently over time? When did this happen? Next you`ll be telling me it`s enabled by having a regular cadence of elections?! YOU WHAT?!

Stick to the community council Tenruh 😂

Note the media have got hold of comments from the Labour candidate for Aberdeen from many years ago and he`s now suspended. Weird how the press manage to report these things but never follow up on multimillion pound scandals. It`s almost as if...no, they couldn`t be...

Still applies to Scottish civil servants though. They can`t do anything perceived to be party political during a pre-election period.

The system is very efficient in Germany.
Nothing goes to waste.
Even football games where fans are travelling to games with bottles and cans.
As you alluded to, down and outs would be at the train stations with huge bags or trolleys to collect their goods to exchange at the supermarkets for a decent return.

They`ve had it in Canada for years. The bins even have little cup holders so you can put bottles/cans on the outside for homeless people to take without raking in the bins. I`d wish society offered support so this wouldn`t be required but at least it gives them a small amount of dignity.

Ridiculous that we`ve got all these DRS sites sitting unused because Westminster are so useless.

Yup, the homeless were kicking about with all sorts to collect them. Very friendly as well, would actually ask if you were finished with a can etc and take it from you if so, and if you said no they would nod and move on. A lot of us were just leaving things beside the bins to make their life easier.

The way their streets are cleaned in early mornings is incredible as well - Dusseldorf looked like a war zone the first night the English were there (not trouble wise), came into the city the next morning and was completely cleared.
