Deposit Return Scheme

Zero Waste Scotland exists to create a society where resources are valued and nothing is wasted. Their goal is to help Scotland realise the economic, environmental and social benefits of making best use of the world’s limited natural resources. Zero Waste Scotland is delighted to be teaming up with Oor Wullie to spread the word about Scotland’s forthcoming Deposit Return Scheme. Each year in Scotland, we use close to 2 billion drinks bottles and cans - jings! Under the scheme, customers will pay a 20p deposit and get it back when they return their plastic bottle, glass bottle or can for recycling. It will be an easy way to do something good for the planet.
