Glass and plastic for coins

From The Panel, 4:52 pm on 14 June 2019

The environment ministry is looking at a scheme that would give consumers a deposit for returning their drink containers for recycling.

The idea came from a petition calling for a return to the old ways were you'd get money for plastic and glass - it would likely be about 10 or 20 cents.

The Panellists weigh in on whether they support a scheme like this or whether it's not going far enough.
