Dutch parliament scraps PET bottle deposit scheme

The Dutch parliament decided to scrap the well-established large PET plastic bottle deposit system, "European Environment & Packaging Law" reports.

It was also confirmed that no deposits should be imposed on cans and small bottles. In the future, Dutch municipalities will be given a special annual financial support from the packaging chain to finance new anti-litter measures agreed with industry (Packaging Framework Agreement 2013-2022 between Ministry, municipalities and industry).

There will also be a special “impulse programme” against litter, financed by the ministry, municipalities and industry. Voting on 26 April, the Parliament agreed to get rid of the PET bottle deposit in 2015, despite municipalities (represented by VNG) expressly stating that they were against such a move.
