Deposit Return Scheme
Transforming the way we recycle.
On 7 June 2023, the Minister for Green Skills, Circular Economy and Biodiversity announced that Scotland’s Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) will be delayed until October 2025 at the earliest. This is to align with schemes in the rest of the UK.
The four administrations are collaborating to ensure they deliver a DRS which is simple and efficient for industry and consumers across the UK.
