Three Leicestershire branches of Tesco are taking part in a new scheme to recycle containers and cut food waste.

Apart from doing the 'right' thing there seems no saving in it for the customer, except for lending your money to a company for up to 6 days (how much, dependant on how many deposits you pay).

How exactly does it save food waste ?

The more senior citizens may like to use it, however they are more likely to be the group who do not have mobile phones or perhaps intentionally or otherwise leave them at home when popping to a shop.

Why do I feel this is not going to take off in any sufficient numbers.

They used to do a refundable drinks container at sports grounds, and made it as difficult as possible to return it for your deposit at the end of the day

Taking empty bottles back to the shop seen as something new, meanwhile many years ago my brother and I would be sent once a week to the local off licence to return empty beer and pop bottles, we were the lucky ones as we got to keep the small amount of money the shop keeper gave for them, most kids had to take it back home.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

For some customers, such as those with young children, mobility issues, or on a time budget, this could be inconvenient.

For those with germ phobias, it could cause anxiety.

or those without a smart phone.
