The Government has published the long-awaited National Litter Strategy for England and Surfers Against Sewage welcome the news that deposit return systems will be seriously assessed as a measure to protect the environment. An expert panel will be looking at evidence to support a successful scheme to add a small refundable deposit to plastic bottles and other containers to help deliver much higher recycling rates, conserve resources, create green jobs, and protect our coastlines from the growing plastic pollution crisis.
This petition will be submitted to Government and presented to the expert panel reviewing bottle deposits.
