A Kerry councillor is appealing to the council to pilot a scheme that would refund people for returning plastic bottles.
Sinn Féin councillor Pa Daly is calling for reverse vending machines to be installed in Tralee.
These machines allow people to return plastic bottles in return for cash.
Cllr Daly says something needs to be done to reduce the amount of plastic waste being produced, which is damaging the local environment.
He says this scheme won’t provide an immediate solution, but believes it may help reduce the amount of plastic going into the environment.
