Survey isnota waste oftime
South Lanarkshire residents are being thanked for their contribution as the public consultation on a national deposit return closed last week.
Zero Waste Scotland took the conversation around the country gathering views from people, including many local residents.
Throughout the summer, people across Scotland had the opportunity to inform what kind of deposit return scheme they would like, at events across the country – from festivals, to visitor attractions, shopping locations and community centres. Zero Waste Scotland hosted roadshow events in each of Scotland’s 32 local authority areas.
Zero Waste Scotland research shows over 64,000 tonnes of plastic food packaging and plastic bottles is thrown away into household general rubbish bins and sent to landfill every year in Scotland, costing the country a staggering £11million each year.
