Recycling could be set to become an even more rewarding task for consumers at Asda stores. The retailer is looking into the possibility of offering incentives to its customers who bring back cans, glass and plastic to their stores. Environmental manager Ian Bowles said: "The UK has no redemption laws so there's little incentive for people to get involved. "There used to be deposits on bottles and people brought them back. "We would use special machines that would sort the materials by type and weight and then offer customers a voucher, either for money off, or perhaps along the lines of books or computers for schools. "It's a fairly innovative idea," he added. Bowles stressed that at the moment the scheme was still under development and no firm plans had been made, although he hoped to roll it out to the stores later this year. {{NEWS }}
