I would like to see a compulsory £1 deposit for all drink containers, cigarette packets and fast food containers. The £1 can be refunded either at a depository at all major supermarkets (funded by the manufacturers of these products) or when a similar product is purchased at a later date (i.e. no further deposit would be required). This system would encourage the mindless morons, who eat and drink outside their own homes but feel at liberty to dump their rubbish all over the countryside, to return their empty containers or would reward those, such as myself, who pick up the rubbish left by said morons.

Why is this idea important?

Our countryside is constantly littered by drink and food containers and this not only spoils the natural beauty of our land but, in some instances, poses a danger to wildlife.
