The Scottish Parliament voted today (Wednesday 13 May) to approve Regulations which will establish Scotland’s Deposit Scheme to boost recycling of single-use drinks containers.Source : Zero Waste Scotland
This means that, on 1 July 2022, Scotland will join around 45 countries and territories around the world who operate a deposit return.
This timetable will give retailers and producers clarity on the future of deposit return in Scotland and more time to prepare.
The scheme will see people pay a 20p deposit on metal cans and PET plastic and glass bottles, refunded when they’re returned for recycling.
The final regulations, which were laid in the Scottish Parliament in March, maintain the ambitious approach to materials, with glass included alongside PET plastic and aluminium and steel. Following consultation with island communities, feedback from the Scottish Parliament’s Environment Committee and stakeholder input, the Scottish Government made changes to the regulations. These include a commitment to review the performance of the scheme by October 2026, including the deposit level, materials and the collection targets.
Now that the scheme has passed into law, details on how to apply to become a scheme administrator(s) that will run Scotland’s Deposit Return Scheme will be available shortly.
Until the deposit return scheme is up and running, as Scotland continues to tackle coronavirus, consumers should follow the latest government and local authority advice on dealing with recycling and waste items.
Oor Wullie’s BIG Farewell Weekend at the Glasgow SEC 13-15 September 2019
The Zero Waste Scotland’s sculpture – Bring Back Your Empties Wullie – is inspired by Scotland’s forthcoming Deposit Return Scheme, in which customers will pay a 20p deposit and get it back when they return their plastic bottle, glass bottle or can for recycling.
Scotland’s deposit return scheme will improve recycling rates, increase the quality of recycling materials, and significantly reduce litter.
“Zero Waste Scotland is proud to be part of Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail. The trail has really captured the public’s imagination and will raise vital funds for a fantastic cause.

We demonstrated the latest x3 “Deposit Return Ready” Reverse Vending Machine at the Zero Waste Scotland stand at the SEC Glasgow.
Wullie is the familiar Scots nickname for boys named William. His trademarks are spiky hair, dungarees and an upturned bucket, which he uses as a seat – most strips since early 1937 begin and end with a single panel of Wullie sitting on his bucket.
Barry and Richard from RVM Systems demonstrated the machine to event visitors and found that everyone is really looking forward to Scotland’s forthcoming Deposit Return Scheme.
The weekend was great fun with many “characters” and superheroes walking around the event and wanting to know more about the Deposit Return Scheme.
Mo Razzaq has installed a new reverse vending machine (RVM) which accepts glass, as-well as PET plastic bottles and drinks cans, in his Supermarket in Blantyre, Scotland.
Mo Razzaq installed our X3 RVM Systems to assess the impact on staff and the logistics “in-store” of accepting glass bottles.
The installation of the Model X3 RVM system, follows a trial of an RVM for drinks cans and plastic bottles which Mo carried out earlier in the year.
Mo Razzaq said “We first trialed a deposit return scheme in December 2018. Then, it only accepted drinks cans and bottles, that was all.
“This week, we introduced the new machine that accepted glass. The main reason behind it was to test how the glass would impact on us retailers.”
The Scottish government announced in May that a Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) for Scotland will include glass, plastic and aluminium drinks containers of all sizes and will apply to all retailers, while the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) confirmed in July it will consult on a proposed model for a Deposit Return Scheme for drinks containers in England and Wales in 2020, ahead of implementation by 2023.
