Major Beverage Makers Start Compliance With Indian State Maharashtra's Buyback Rules For PET Bottles

July 20, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Leading beverage companies in India have started printing buyback values on plastic bottles of products sold in the state of Maharashtra. Part of their efforts to comply with the state's new regulations and to help control plastic pollution, buyback schemes allow consumers to return used plastic bottles and get paid based on buyback values indicated on the bottles. While the scheme is likely to be adopted by other Indian states, some industry observers there is a need for a unified, holistic approach to dealing with plastic pollution.[Image Credit: © Hans Braxmeier]
