Ben Corney Cork & Bottle Barnstaple Devon "Considering that not every pub is recycling, thenit seems a bit of a daft idea. They should be returnable to the supplier until pubs are ready to deal with a large quantity of bottles. However the number of recycling centres is growing and they are getting more advanced." Ray Steger Beaufort Arms Cheltenham "I am all for them. We regularly take a batch down to the recycling site. The advantage of a non-returnable is that you do not waste time messing around with deposits. I definitely prefer them to returnable bottles but what I would like to see is recycling equipment supplied to the pub premises." Jan Marpole The Gaggle of Geese Buckland Newton Dorset "Recycling creates an awful lot of extra hard work for licensees and it costs money. In our village there is constant advertising blur about the opening of new bottle banks in the area. However, the nearest site is still three miles away. It becomes a major operation to load the car with empty bottles and dispose of them at the recycling plant.
