Amy Khor on beverage container return scheme

14:25 Min

The proposed beverage container return scheme will encourage a higher recycling rate and "aggregate a stream of cleaner and higher quality recyclables" that can be used to produce new products, thus enhancing the resource loop, says Senior Minister of State for Sustainability and the Environment Amy Khor. Similar schemes in countries such as Norway, Sweden and Lithuania have achieved return rates of 80 per cent or higher, she said. Speaking in reply to Parliamentary questions on Tuesday (Oct 4), she said as public consultations are still ongoing, not all the details of the scheme have been finalised. She urged stakeholders and the public to share their views, as the ongoing REACH consultation will be open until Oct 14.
