LAPP publishes on Leiden Law Blog about plastic bottles
LAPP students Emily den Boer and Louise Floris, together with Esther Kentin, wrote about the proposal for a plastic bottle deposit return system that has been discussed in the Dutch Parliament in April 2019.
The blog deals with the developments regarding a deposit system for small plastic bottles. Plastic Soup Surfer Merijn Tinga asked LAPP to advise him on the legislative procedure after he had presented a petition on introducing a deposit fee on small plastic bottles to the Dutch Parliament in 2017. While not yet in place, the Dutch government prepares an amendment for setting a mandatory deposit fee on small plastic bottles. This amendment will also anticipate the proposal for the EU Single-Use Plastics Directive.
