The webinar is your chance to quiz experts from all sides on the practicalities and politics of DRS

The Grocer’s latest webinar is set to tackle the much-anticipated launch of national deposit return schemes (DRS).

A panel of DRS experts from grocery retailers, suppliers, packaging companies and DRS operators will answer questions from viewers in the webinar, to be broadcast at 11am on 1 October.

They include Klöckner Pentaplast UK, Ireland and Australia MD Dr Helene Roberts, Coca-Cola European Partners Great Britain head of sustainability Nick Brown, Co-op environment manager Iain Ferguson, and recycling company Infinitum AS CEO Kjell Olav Maldum.

What does a successful DRS scheme look like? What should be included? And who is going to pay? These will be among the questions addressed by our experts in the webinar, titled ‘Delivering a Deposit Return Scheme’. 

“The introduction of national deposit return schemes has the potential to dramatically increase recycling rates and reduce litter rates,” said Adam Leyland, editor of The Grocer.

“But with competing views on how best to run them, and concerns over potential fraud, costs, and other unintended consequences, our webinar will answer reader questions and debate all the key issues.”
