The Scottish Government has reiterated its pledge to introduce a deposit return scheme as part of plans to further tackle plastic waste.

It is hoped that the deposit return scheme will increase the quality and quantity of recycled materials collected in Scotland, with the aim that these materials will be re-used in the Scottish food and drinks industry.
