A Deposit Return Scheme can provide a useful tool in the recycling of certain packaging. Such a scheme should be national in scope if it is to be truly effective

I will continue to review emerging government policy on DRS and the success of the waste policies in my own Environment Strategy with a view to constantly push London’s recycling performance and keep this option open.
