Evaluation of digital technology in a deposit return scheme: phase 1 report , file type: PDF, file size: 926 KB
We are working in collaboration to introduce a scheme covering Wales, England and Northern Ireland.
We want to understand if digital technology could help the operation of the scheme. There is the potential for greater convenience, less fraud and lower set up and running costs.
Resource Futures were appointed to undertake a detailed evaluation project.
This work has been collaborative, with input and support from across the drink value chain.
This first phase of the evaluation study comprised an extensive series of interviews. Including:
- producers and brands,
- technology providers,
- trade and industry bodies,
- waste management companies,
- local authorities,
- non-profit organisations.
Assessment of the information gathered identified six key areas of further study to be included in the phase two report.
