The UK government have announced plans for a deposit return scheme to crack down on plastic pollution.
In a press release they said “A deposit return scheme to increase recycling rates and slash the amount of waste polluting our land and seas will be introduced subject to consultation later this year, it was confirmed today.”

The move is seen by The Recycling Store as a massive step towards a more sustainable future for the United Kingdom.
The announcement comes days ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in April, where member states will gather in London and agree measures to protect our oceans.
