Don’t dilute or delay a Deposit Return Scheme

CPRE has been calling for an all-in Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) for over ten years.  This is a simple system that prevents the littering of drinks containers and ensures recycling rates of over 90%.

Yet, despite committing two years ago to making this happen, the government is seeking to delay and water-down its promises once again.  

CPRE is sending a message in a bottle directly to the Prime Minister telling him to commit to an all-in DRS now. Will you add your name? Please do so by clicking this link and signing the petition.  It’s very quick and easy to do: you just provide your name and email address.
