MŽP presents theses on beverage packaging deposits

(CIANEWS) - The Ministry of the Environment (MŽP) presented the theses of the legislative regulation of the future solution of the deposit system for selected disposable beverage packaging - PET bottles and cans. It should allow more than 2.5 billion plastic beverage bottles and cans to be recycled. Minister Petr Hladík (KDU-ČSL) said that the costs of introducing the system and its operation will be borne by beverage producers and importers, while citizens will only pay a refundable deposit for the packaging, which will be returned to them regardless of whether they shop in a large supermarket, a small shop or on the internet.
