Tesco trials money back on returned plastic bottles, and calls for a national approach to recycling

Tesco install our latest Reverse Vending Machines

Tesco has today announced further ways to make it simpler for customers to recycle and reuse plastic packaging, and stepped up its commitment to move to a closed loop packaging system. It also calls on Government to introduce a consistent nation-wide approach to recycling.

To encourage customers to recycle plastic bottles, Tesco has today begun trialling in-store Reverse Vending machines, which will pay customers for every plastic bottle returned. The trial will take place at selected stores in Borehamwood, Swansea, Edinburgh, Manchester and Birmingham. The first machine opens for customers in Borehamwood today (27 September) and will pay 10p for bottles returned.

In addition, from 3 October customers will be able to reuse their own multi-use plastic containers when they buy meat, cheese or fish from deli and fish counters in UK stores. Instead of using single-use plastic bags, products will be weighed and wrapped in recyclable paper then placed inside the customer’s container with the price label placed on the paper.

Earlier this year Tesco announced its intention to simplify the number of materials it used in packaging to help improve the ease and rate of recyclability. It also highlighted the challenges of having different collection schemes in different local authority areas making it costly and confusing for customers to recycle.

Jason Tarry, UK and ROI CEO said:

“We are already committed to eliminating single use plastic wherever we can and make recycling simpler for customers. Today is another step in that direction 

“However, we know that it is going to take retailers, manufacturers and government to work together to make progress. We would urge the government to move to a single, nationwide approach to waste collection that makes it much easier for people to recycle.”

 

NOTES TO EDITORS:

Tesco’s approach to packaging

Over 80% of the packaging on all our own brand Tesco products is recyclable depending on if the local authority collect it. As part of our Little Helps plan, we have made the following commitments:

  • Making all packaging fully recyclable or compostable by 2025.
  • Ensuring that all paper and board used will be 100% sustainable by 2025.
  • Halving packaging weight by 2025 compared to 2007 levels.

www.tescoplc.com/little-helps-plan/products-packaging/

In May 2018, Tesco announced its commitment to remove, reduce, recover, reuse and recycle packaging.

We outlined three steps to achieve this:

  1. Materials and design: In collaboration with our suppliers, we can reduce and simplify the types of materials we use in our packaging so that less packaging is used and packaging is easier to recycle. We have reviewed every material used in our Own Brand packaging and as a result of our review and consultation process with our suppliers, we have developed a preferred material list for our product packaging.
  1. Recovery/recycling: This is one area we need greater innovation and there is opportunity for significant government leadership. Currently, the inconsistencies in infrastructure and recycling activities between councils make consumer education and closed loop systems impossible to build. We would welcome the creation of an integrated national collection of packaging and investment in innovative recycling facilities. This is essential to a holistic approach to packaging recycling. PRN reform is also a necessary part of the solution and we look to contributing to this process.
  1. Changing customer behaviour: Behaviour change can only be driven once a recognised and understood recycling infrastructure is in place. Getting this right will support consumer education and practice.

Reverse Vending Scheme

According to the results of a national poll by YouGov, nearly three quarters of Britons would be likely to return plastic bottles and aluminium cans under a Reverse Vending Scheme.

The first bottle trials will be limited to 10 bottles per customer, per day and up to 750ml bottles can be deposited.

Bring your own container

Following a successful trial in 10 stores, customers will be able to use their own containers at deli counters in over 700 UK stores.

Customers will not be able to use their own containers for:

  • Hot food products such as cooked rotisserie chicken.
  • Store prepared pizzas.
  • The salad bar.
  • Olives and antipasti.

Customers will need to bring separate containers for raw and ready-to-eat cooked products.

Customers can only use multi-use plastic sealable containers. No glass, metal or cardboard containers will be accepted.

The paper wrapping is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.

First in Scotland – Deposit Return Scheme

June 15, 2018

First Deposit Return scheme with Reverse Vending in Scotland

iceland_3

Iceland’s in-store trial of RVM coincides with Zero Waste Scotland’s ongoing investigation into design options for a deposit return scheme for drinks containers. The Scottish Government announced its intention to introduce DRS last September, with the UK Government following suit last spring.

iceland_reverse_vending_reward

Iceland customers will receive 10 pence for every plastic bottle recycled through the revend Reverse Vending Machine ( the bottles must be purchased at Iceland Stores)

RVM Systems installed the first machine in the Fulham Iceland store on the 18th May 2018. This was an industry first , as it was the first deposit return installation in a UK Supermarket.

On the 6th June 2018 we installed Scotland’s first Deposit Return scheme in the Musselburgh store.

The frozen food giant is expected to share insights gained from its RVM trial with both the UK and Scottish governments as they continue to consult on deposit return.

Iceland Foods Group managing director Richard Walker said the trial represents further progress in the firm’s commitment to tackling plastic pollution.

“While the initial trial in London (with RVM Systems) has been a success Iceland Foods feel it is important to include insights from consumers elsewhere in the UK to get a better understanding of the challenges we might face,”

Richard Walker managing director of Iceland Foods Group said “At least one third of plastics, much of this relating to packaging, is single use and then discarded – plastic bottles are a prime example of this. Through our trials, we hope to understand how to make it easier for people to act in an environmentally conscious way while tackling the threat of the millions of plastic bottles that go unrecycled every day.”

Scottish Government environment secretary Roseanna Cunningham praised Iceland for trialling deposit return at its Musselburgh store.

“The reverse vending machine will provide valuable evidence on how to help reduce single-use plastic waste and encourage customers to change their own behaviour as we look to end Scotland’s throwaway culture,” she said.

“I would urge all manufacturers and retailers to follow Iceland’s example and consider what action they can take to reduce the use of single-use plastics.

“In the coming months, the Scottish Government will be consulting on a new deposit return scheme for drinks containers that will be one step to increase recycling rates right across Scotland.”

ICELAND BECOMES FIRST UK SUPERMARKET TO SHOW IN-STORE SUPPORT FOR THE GOVERNMENT’S PROPOSED DEPOSIT RETURN SCHEME

June 1, 2018

18 May, 2018 – Iceland became the first UK supermarket to install  Reverse Vending in store in support of the Government’s recently announced intention to introduce a Deposit Return Scheme in England.

iceland_reverse_vending
The UK’s leading frozen food specialist continues to lead the way in reducing the impact ofplastic packaging on the environment, and will be trialling the reverse vending machine in its Fulham, London, store initially for six months. The trial aims to understand consumer perceptions and appetite for the technology and comes ahead of the launch of the Government’s Deposit Return Scheme, providing insights which will allow Iceland to maximise the positive environmental impact of the national initiative.
Reverse vending machines reward individuals for recycling, by providing money or vouchers in return for empty containers.

iceland_reverse_vending_reward

Iceland’s reverse vending machine accepts any Iceland plastic beverage bottle and repays customers with a 10p voucher to be used in store for each bottle recycled. The announcement is yet another demonstration of the supermarket’s dedication to tackling the issue of plastic pollution globally, following the pledge it made in January to eliminate plastic packaging from all of its own label products by the end of 2023.
The move also comes following extensive consultation between Iceland and suppliers, to
understand fully the possible implications to the supply chain of the reverse vending machine project.
Iceland Managing Director, Richard Walker commented:
“The vocal support Iceland has received since announcing our intention to eradicate plastic packaging has shown us that there is a huge public will to tackle the scourge of plastics. “We’re the first supermarket to take decisive action to bring the reverse vending machine into stores, following the announcement of the Government’s support for a Deposit Return Scheme in England. We’re doing it properly, through consultation with suppliers and by gaining understanding of how customers will act in response to the machine.
“There are 12 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans every year¹, so we feel a
responsibility both to tackle the issue of plastic packaging, as we are doing with our own label products, and to give our customers the power to make a difference themselves.”
Iceland’s action comes with strong support from the Government, with whom they have been in ongoing consultation since they first announced their 2023 plastics pledge in January. Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,
commented: “We can be in no doubt that plastic is damaging to our marine environment. Plastic pollution contributes to killing dolphins, choking turtles and degrading our most precious habitats. “I applaud Iceland for leading the way with their trial scheme. It is absolutely vital we act now to curb the millions of plastic bottles a day that go unrecycled. Support from businesses will be a vital part of ensuring we leave our environment in a better state than we found it.”

CANARY WHARF LAUNCHES THE FIRST UK ON-SITE DEPOSIT RETURN SCHEME AS PART OF ITS “BREAKING THE PLASTIC HABIT” CAMPAIGN – 19.04.18

canary-wharf-media-release-rvm-190418-1-741x417

Canary Wharf launches the first UK on-site Deposit Return Scheme as part of its “Breaking the Plastic Habit” Campaign

Visitors to Canary Wharf can now recycle their single-use plastic bottles and cans using an innovative Deposit Return Scheme. This is the first publicly accessible recycling machine in the UK and coincides with the Government’s announcement to crack down on plastic pollution.

Positioned in Canada Place, thousands of people who come to Canary Wharf will be able to recycle their single-use plastic bottles and cans in a simple, easy and efficient way.

Currently, only 43% of the 13billion plastic bottles sold each year in the UK are recycled, with 700,000 littered each day. In Germany, 99% of plastic bottles are recycled after a similar Deposit Return Scheme was introduced there in 2003.*

This automated machine uses an innovative 360-degree scanning recognition system to identify, segregate, collect and process waste drink containers, creating a resource from recyclates that would otherwise likely be incinerated or sent to landfill. The Deposit Return Scheme at Canary Wharf will also have the ability to reward users with vouchers and discounts planned to roll out in the next few months.

Lugano Kapembwa, Sustainability Manager, Canary Wharf Group says, “We are proud to be the first in the UK to launch the Deposit Return Scheme to give our shoppers the opportunity to recycle their single-use plastic and metal. From our research we know that visitors to the Estate want to do more for the environment.

“This initiative follows on from the hugely successful ‘Wake Up And Smell The Coffee’ campaign launched last year to recycle coffee cups, lids and coffee grounds at Canary Wharf with 664,285 of coffee cups recycled instead of going to landfill.”

This new initiative is in direct response to feedback from Canary Wharf’s customer research undertaken last year as part of World Environment Day.

The installation of the unit is just one element of Canary Wharf’s 12 month ‘one-use plastics’ reduction and behavioural change campaign. Over the next few months, Canary Wharf will be examining next generation sustainability issues, with a focus on tackling the complex issue of plastics pollution as they lead the UK fight against one-use plastics (#refuseoneuse). Other upcoming activity in the campaign includes a pioneering total plastic straw ban, Estate-wide one-use plastics audit and a World Environment Day plastics debate.

Scotland have confirmed they will have a Mandatory Deposit Return Scheme

Sky launch new Campaign “SKY OCEAN RESCUE discussing numerous topics including “Deposit Return Schemes”.

January 26, 2017

 

The new campaign is calling for a deposit scheme for single use plastic bottles to help tackle plastic pollution threatening seas.

https://skyoceanrescue.com

branny

The new campaign is calling for a deposit scheme for single use plastic bottles to help tackle plastic pollution threatening seas.

Sir Richard Branson has told Sky News he finds it “astonishing” that President Donald Trump wants to roll back measures to protect the environment which were brought in by his predecessors.

The billionaire and green ambassador was talking to Dermot Murnaghan as part of Sky’s Ocean Rescue campaign to reduce plastic waste.

Sir Richard said, in the absence of leadership from the White House on the threats of pollution and climate change, “business leaders are going to have to step in and work with the public in doing what we believe to be right”.

Sir Richard Branson also backed Sky’s campaign to introduce a deposit scheme for single use plastic bottles, which is fiercely resisted by the soft drinks industry.

Sky state :

We want to use our voice as Europe’s leading Entertainment Company and the potential of our reach to inspire people to take action to protect our planet. We choose big, global issues that matter to our customers and to inspire people to make a real difference.

We’ll bring to life our amazing ocean for millions of people across Europe. We’ll bring the issues of ocean health to life and discuss the solutions. Sky News will take the lead by airing a special one hour documentary showing how plastics are affecting our oceans. Through the campaign we will explore the different ways people can help to make a difference and will aim to inspire people to take action.

 

We’re doing our bit at Sky too, looking at everything we do that impacts the Oceans, from designing our products with less material, to ensuring our products are recycled. Removing all single-use plastics is a significant step we are looking to take. We’ve made a good start by removing all plastic water bottles, plastic cups, straws, and our cutlery is made from corn-starch. This is just the beginning of the changes – we are up for the challenge and will do more, including looking at our supply chain and the products we make.

Recycle and Reward

The machine will automate the collection of used beverage containers (used Plastic drink bottles and used drink cans) and reward the recycler with a reward voucher.

By rewarding the recycler we know that we are able to increase recycling activity and awareness, whilst reducing litter.

state of the art Reverse Vending technology and even compacts items by up to 90% of their original volumes and stores them ready for recycling

State of the art Reverse Vending technology  compacts items by up to 90% of their original volumes and stores them ready for recycling

Reduction in Waste Costs

The reVend Reverse Vending Machine installed at Queens Hospital uses state of the art Reverse Vending technology and even compacts items by up to 90% of their original volumes and stores them ready for recycling

With a large storage capacity and compaction of the items, the machine requires less emptying, reducing staff time as waste volume and quantity is reduced in other onsite bins. When the machine is full, the machine sends email alerts allowing for the resources to be collected and stored on site until a large enough quantity is collected. Installing one Reverse Vending Machine has the equivalent C02 saving of taking 2,000 cars off the road.

Queens Hospital is the first to install this unique reverse vending recycling machine in the UK. Customers who recycle their used drink cans and drink plastic bottles will automatically receive a reward voucher from the recycling machine to use in-store.

 

The new range of recycling machines will help increase national recycling amounts and assist companies and organisations comply with their recycling targets and environmental recycling obligations.
