Global Recycling Day
March 18, 2023 | Written by Rachel Warren
It’s Global Recycling Day, and we’d like to thank all the #RecyclingHeroes that help make a difference in keeping our communities cleaner through recycling.
We’re proud to have collaborated with the brilliant #recyclingheroes at Bryson Recycling, MEA Borough Council and the IWMA (Irish Waste Management Association) working with their passionate teams to shine a light to government and industry on the benefits that digital can bring.
The World First Digital DRS community pilot in collaboration with Bryson Recycling and Mid and East Antrim Borough Council engaged communities to take part in the first ever digital deposit return scheme using home kerbside recycling boxes – seeing strong community participation.
The community pilot with IWMA in Dublin saw an impressive 🌟 94% return rate 🌟using real cash deposits and refunds 💶
We commissioned research by OnePoll in 2022 which suggested that nearly two thirds, 63 per cent, of people would prefer a digital deposit return scheme for drinks containers and other items, allowing them to continue to recycle at home rather than return to store.
Digital brings citizen convenience and data intelligence through item to item transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain.
We look forward to working with like minded organisations and Recycling heroes in championing digital DRS- engaging people to recycle more and helping industry with their EPR and sustainability goals.
