Deposit return scheme: Scottish proposals shelved until 2025
Lorna Slater has confirmed Scotland’s deposit return scheme will now not be launched until October 2025.
Circular Economy Minister Lorna Slater said: “I told parliament yesterday that our scheme cannot proceed as planned.
"The refusal of the UK Government alone to budge on glass makes that obvious.
“As of today it is now clear that we have been left with no other option than to delay the launch of Scotland’s DRS until October 2025 at the earliest based on the UK Government’s current aspirations.”
