Plastic Bottle Deposits Vital for UK

Suggestions from the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) claim that the UK should have a deposit scheme for used plastic bottles, to cut down the 12 million tonnes currently thrown into the oceans every year.

The claims suggested to the government, state that the scheme could raise the plastic bottle recycling rate to around 90%.

In addition, the Committee wants to add free public drinking water in the form of fountains in town centres and ensure producers of plastic packaging bear some of the financial responsibility for recycling.

Rather than simply paying around 10% of the necessary disposal costs – ensuring taxpayers pick up the bill for the further 90%.

The UK’s plastic bottle recycling rate has been stagnant for the past five years, the EAC claim that producers are partly responsible.

Chair of the EAC, Mary Creagh MP states: “Urgent action is needed to protect our environment from the devastating effects of marine plastic pollution which, if it continues to rise at current rates, will outweigh fish by 2050.”
