Have You Got the Bottle

HYGTB logoHave You Got The Bottle? is a campaign led by the Association for the Protection of  Rural Scotland. The campaign is urging Scottish Ministers to introduce a deposit return system for plastic, glass and metal drinks containers to reduce litter, support a circular economy in Scotland, boost the recycling sector and create jobs, reduce public sector costs and improve the environment for residents and visitors alike.

APRS gratefully acknowledges the funding which the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation has provided towards this campaign.
