A. M. l. / the high Chamber approves law of waste and contaminated soils. A waste Commission shall decide on the technical and economic feasibility of the application of the system of deposit, refund and return of containers (SDDR). The system would imply for consumer acquisition of container for an extra amount that would be returned to return it to the point of sale once consumed.
The old system of return of bottles opens again way in waste management, after approval this Wednesday at the plenary session of the Senate the law on waste and contaminated soils. The system, endorsed by major environmental groups, would imply for consumer acquisition of container for an extra amount that would be returned to you to return it to the point of sale once consumed the product. Deposit, refund and return of containers (SDDR) system allows you to retrieve the value of the container when the user delivered directly to shops or points of distribution, while the integrated system of management (GIS) or points clean, they charge municipalities for management, account with voluntary participation and non-remunerated the citizen who separates garbage. Application of the SDDR, which coexist with collection points, will depend on the reports of technical, environmental and economic viability submitted to study the Commission of waste that will be created to this cto, according to an amendment agreed by all parliamentary groups. The real scope of this Commission will be established by a regulation that the Government will adopt in the coming months, as they explain to the Senate sources. If it proves technically viable and complements the objectives of the GIS, the SDDR economically recognize of own consumer recycling work. Without that stipulated even price, for every bottle returned consumer will receive the amount that has been invested in the first purchase of container and that will not represent an expense as long as soon as it is returned.
