CPRE calls for UK-wide Drink Container Deposit Scheme

UK Deposit Alliance

CPRE calls for UK-wide deposit scheme

CPRE calls for UK-wide deposit scheme

 

British Library Conference Centre, central London

 

The UK Deposit Alliance will provide a focus for the many groups, individuals and policy makers interested in the potential of a UK-wide deposit refund system for drinks containers.

Reverse Vending Machine

Used in Europe for over five decades, In most cases Reverse Vending Recycling Systems are used in markets that have deposits on beverage containers, offering a highly efficient method of identifying the deposit amount of each container returned and providing a refund to the customer, .

The opportunities and threats presented by a deposit scheme tend to polarise the debate. The Alliance seeks to present a balanced view of these positions and provide up to date information for discussion and conversation.

Members can submit information, ideas and arguments for dissemination and feedback.

This launch event will provide the latest thinking on how a deposit scheme could work in the UK and how the existing system in Germany runs using a free market approach, highlighting both the benefits and difficulties encountered.

Iain Gulland, Director, Zero Waste Scotland, said: “It’s vital that we consider fresh approaches to boosting recycling rates and capturing the value of materials which would otherwise be sent straight to landfill. Through this pilot, we want to assess the impact of this approach which has proved successful around the world, including in Germany, South Australia and Scandinavia. It’s important we change the way people view waste in Scotland and we’ll be looking at how incentivising these recycling schemes impacts on recycling rates and complements other schemes designed to capture valuable materials, including kerbside, recycling centres and banks.”

Iain Gulland, Director, Zero Waste Scotland,

Zero Waste Scotland will share the background to its work delivering a deposit pilot scheme for the Scottish Government and some of the preliminary findings.

And we will hear from Retorna, which will premiere the results from its pilot scheme that has run throughout Catalunya, concluding on 30th June. Insights on the success of the scheme will be shared, including the political context, the effects of extended producer responsibility legislation and the impact on the existing Green Box recycling scheme.

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to contribute to the conversation and share their own thoughts and concerns about how the scheme could work, what benefits there might be – for the economy, the environment and society – and what the unintended consequences, both positive and negative, might be for their industry or sector.

It is coordinating the launch of the UK Deposit Alliance in London  (10 July), where speakers from across Europe will highlight, what they describe as, the benefits of drink deposit schemes. The group argues that small deposit on drinks containers increases recycling revenue and quality, creates jobs and eradicates litter.

Full time jobs

In a statement, the CPRE said: “By putting a small deposit on each container, people are given the incentive to return their bottles or cans rather than throwing them away, in order to redeem it. Implementing a UK-wide scheme could lead to 3,000-4,300 full-time equivalent jobs being created across the country.

“At the launch event, results from a comprehensive pilot project in Catalunya, which ended 10 days ago, will be presented for the first time and preliminary findings from eight pilot projects in Scotland will also be shared.”

CPRE Stop the Drop campaign manager Samantha Harding said: “With millions of drinks containers made from finite resources sold every year in the UK, many of which end up as litter on land and at sea, we should do everything we can to capture them for recycling.

“We need people to know these containers are valuable, not to be freely discarded. A small deposit on each container has been shown to work well in other countries, creating jobs and keeping our countryside, towns and seas cleaner – why can’t we do it here?”
