I met representatives of the soft drinks industry on 24 October to discuss increasing recycling and reducing the littering of drinks containers. A representative of Lucozade Ribena Suntory was present at the meeting.

The meeting was to inform our approach to plastic bottles and coffee cups and to support the Voluntary and Economic Incentives Working Group with their inquiry into increasing recycling and reducing littering of on-the-go drinks containers.
