Phil Webb started this petition to Rt Hon Michael Gove MP

What are the most common items thrown away on grass verges, or washed up on the beach? Plastic drinks bottles and metal cans. If there was a small deposit on these items such as 5 or 10p this would be an incentive for people to return them. It would also mean that groups trying to collect money and homeless people would collect them and clean up our environment. Other countries have this system in place, so there is no reason why this cannot be made to work in the UK. It is clear that our environment, land and sea is being damaged by these items, it is time to cut down on non-biodegradable waste before we are overwhelmed by it.
