On the 24 March, UK Governments released the consultation Introducing a Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

The aim of the DRS it to increase capture of drinks containers for recycling. Consumers will pay a small deposit on items such as PET plastic drinks bottles, which can then be refunded at a retailer return point or reverse vending machine. It is planned to be implemented in England in 2023.
