The NFRN has welcomed the call by the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs secretary Michael Gove for the introduction of an “all in “ deposit return scheme in England and Wales.

NFRN National President Stuart Reddish said: “ The NFRN has long been a supporter of the introduction of deposit return schemes across the UK. We see it as a matter of responsible retailing – doing what is right to protect our environment while giving retailers the opportunity to develop their businesses.

Mr Reddish concluded: “As members of the Implementation Advisory Group we have been working very closely with the Scottish Government on the design and implementation of a DRS in Scotland and we look forward to working equally as closely with the government in Westminster.”
