||<p>The government is committed to reducing the adverse environmental impacts of transport.
Reducing plastic and non-recyclable waste on public transport is predominantly a matter
for transport operators. However, the Department for Transport (DfT) encourages improvements.
For example, DfT sets targets in rail franchise agreements for operators to reduce
waste to landfill and to increase the proportion of waste that is recycled.</p><p>
</p><p>Network Rail (NR) has installed drinking facilities in nine stations to reduce
plastic waste and plans to introduce facilities to all other NR-managed stations.
By the end of 2020, NR plans to ban retailers from supplying plastic cutlery and cups,
implement a coffee cup recycling scheme, and expand the roll-out of coffee ground
recycling to all NR-managed stations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
