Czechs in favour of introducing deposits for plastic bottles and cans, according to survey

More than two-thirds Czechs are in favour of introducing a deposit system for plastic bottles (74 percent) and cans (70 percent), according to the results of a survey conducted by the Ipsos agency for the Deposits Initiative (Iniciativa pro zálohování).

However, around 80 percent of respondents also said that introducing a deposit system would not change their habits when it comes to the number of cans and bottles they purchase.

The ideal deposit price would be CZK 4, according to the survey results.
