Comment

“Aberdeenshire Environmental Forum are supportive of Deposit Return Systems for beverage and other containers. We recognise that placing a monetary value on such materials gives them a tangible value that the public will recognise over and above their intrinsic value as a resource.

Aberdeenshire Litter Initiative- ALi, believed to be the largest Adopt – a – Street project in the UK, has been going for 10 years with 620 members many of whom report that beverage containers form a large part of the litter that they collect.   DRS will undoubtedly lead to a reduction in such littering behaviour and act as another ‘environmental’ nudge to the general public.”
