Westminster has told the Scottish Government what it can and can’t do with deposit return.
Today APRS and volunteers from Fife Street Champions demonstrated outside Tesco Duloch, calling on the supermarket chain to support Scotland’s upcoming deposit return scheme. The campaigners brought littered trollies filled with littered cans and bottles.
APRS and environmental NGOs from across the UK have written an open letter urging the Prime Minister to grant an exclusion to the Internal Markets Act and include glass in England’s Deposit Return Scheme.
APRS is delighted to welcome the Running Out of Time Relay to Edinburgh. The biggest sporting celebration of climate action and nature is taking place between June 10th and July 11th.

Help us gather litter data before and after the Deposit Return launch in Scotland to show the impact this circular economy initiative will make!
