Public support for Scottish DRS scheme.
Nearly four in five Scottish people support the introduction of Scotland's Deposit Return Scheme (DRS), a new YouGov survey commissioned by Zero Waste Scotland shows.
The recycling scheme, which will be introduced in Scotland within the next two years, will see people receive a 20p deposit when they return single-use drinks containers to cafes, takeaways and shops, including convenience stores, newsagents and supermarkets.
The financial incentive is expected to see 90% of bottles and cans recycled - reducing Scotland's CO2 emissions by an estimated 160,000 tonnes every year, Zero Waste Scotland said.
More than 70% of people said that helping the environment would be a motivating factor for returning their empty drinks containers, while 70% cited reducing litter.
Cabinet secretary for environment, climate change and land reform Roseanna Cunningham said: "I am pleased, but not surprised, to see the strength of support for Scotland's DRS, with its mulitple environmental benefits a key factor."
