It was announced by the UK government in 2018 that all drinks containers in England, whether plastic, glass or metal, will be covered by a deposit return scheme (DRS).

Consumers are expected to return their bottles for a small monetary value or perk, once returned retailers are responsible for the recycling of the containers.

Whilst the new DRS is sill subject to consultation, many companies
are getting ahead of the curve, with one UK retailer recycling over 310,000
bottles in just approximately 8 months.

Greenbank has a baler specially designed for such materials and their potential fluids, the baler comes sealed as standard and with a specialised drainage system. In addition, the machine can be galvanised to prevent corrosion.

Adrian Saltmarsh, Greenbank's Technical Sales Consultant, is on hand to answer any queries you may have.
