This week’s episode focuses on the Deposit and Return Scheme, a new initiative about to be implemented across Ireland. 

It will see a small deposit being added to eligible plastic bottles, aluminium or steel cans. When the empty and undamaged container is returned to a retail outlet, the customer will receive their deposit back. 

Aislinn visited Garvey’s Supervalu in Corbally to discover how this scheme will work and spoke to Sinead McDonnell, Environmental Awareness Officer for Limerick County Council to learn how this will contribute to a circular economy.
