I often collect other people's litter ( bottels and cans) when out walking my dogs and try to recycle it. I would like to be able to benefit a charity by returning bottles and it might might some suppliers more careful about their packaging/containers too.
Could we return to the old idea of deposits on bottles and perhaps also on cans? This would encourage people to return items, not just dump them and it could also help charities benefit too, if people collected items and returned them on the charioty's behalf. It would give people an incentive to recycle.
