Introducing a Deposit Return Scheme - Consultation overview & how to respond
Thursday 6 May at 2pm
The second consultation for introducing a Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) was released by government in late March and is for England, Wales and Northern Ireland only, as Scotland have already had their DRS legislation passed. This consultation is focused upon implementation of a DRS with the aim of reducing littering, boosting recycling levels and moving towards a more circular economy.
During this webinar, we will be providing a summary of deposit return schemes, an overview of the proposals within the consultation, how this relates to Scotland’s DRS as well as Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for packaging, and guidance on how to submit a response to government.
