Higher bottle deposits

This article was originally published in Foodnews

ISRAEL's government has extended the country's bottle deposit law to cover 1.5 litre bottles and make beverage manufacturers and importers responsible for implementing it. The deposit will be between ILS0.10-0.25 (about 2.5-6.0 US cents), subject to meeting collection targets. The current deposit is ILS0.25 on beverage bottles of up to 1.5 litres. Consumers can redeem those bottles for the deposit, and the bottles are recycled by a corporation jointly owned by beverage makers and importers. The industry has retorted that the plan will increase drinks prices, make deposit redemption more complicated and expand the involvement of organised crime in bottle collection.
