What is it and when will it take effect?

  • Deposit placed on drink containers at point of retail sale in Scotland
  • Deposit can be reclaimed by consumer upon return of empty container
  • Likely to have impact on littering reduction and theoretical waste value chain benefits
  • Planned for introduction from 2022
