Coca-Cola Supports U.K. Plan To Test Deposit Return Program To Boost Recycling

March 28, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola says it is fully supporting British government plans to test a deposit return program in the U.K. that will include glass, plastic, and metal containers. The company’s vice president for Europe, Julian Hunt, calls the plan a "once-in-a-generation opportunity" to deal with growing worries about plastics by working with the government on package recovery and recycling. Deposit return initiatives elsewhere in Europe have sharply increased in the number of bottles recycled. Current systems in the U.K. had reached between 60 percent and 70 percent of plastic bottles recovered, “but that's not high enough," said Hunt.
