Container deposit

Brian Mayes (Letters, 21 May) seems to agree with Clark Cross about the adequate number of recycling bins for bottles and cans but then disagrees with him over his opposition to the Scottish Government proposal to introduce “deposit and return”.

Why should the majority of those who do recycle be inconvenienced by the minority who throw away bottles and cans?

As Mr Cross said in his earlier letter, there are far more pressing needs for MSPs’ time, the latest of which, according to education scretary Angela Constance, is that schools need “radical” reform after eight years of failure under the SNP.
