I've just cleared 50 bin bags full of litter from a small steep old railway embankment. In countries where deposits are charged much larger amounts of cans and bottles are recycled. It's a win win for the environment. The government is talking about delaying this bill until 2024 at the earliest to help small businesses recover from the lock downs. The environment will continue to suffer if it's not brought in sooner. I cleared a 300 yard long path and hedgerow two months ago. Returning I collected 124 cans, 28 plastic and 33 glass bottles. In countries with deposit schemes their recycling rates are much higher so much of this selfish and inconsiderate dumping just wouldn't take place. Let's push for the deposit scheme to be brought forwards and not put back. Let's start to clean up our country and at least take litter home to our own bins and recycle what we can.
