British Glass CEO Dave Dalton comments on glass' exclusion from England and Northern Ireland's DRS

Commenting on Glass' exclusion from the proposed DRS in England and Northern Ireland, CEO Dave Dalton said: 

“British Glass welcomes the decision by Defra and the Northern Ireland Executive to keep glass out of the proposed deposit return scheme in England and Northern Ireland. Ensuring that glass is recycled through an effective kerbside system, coupled with the introduction of extended producer responsibility, is absolutely the right way to improve glass recycling rates and reduce carbon emissions.

“We very much look forward to working with government to make extended producer responsibility a success for glass packaging, helping to meet the UK’s rightly ambitious environmental targets.”
