Your thoughts on bottle deposit scheme; News in Brief.

Stirling residents are being encouraged to have their say on a deposit return scheme for drinks bottles and cans in Scotland.

The scheme would involve customers paying a deposit when they buy drinks and getting the money back when they return the empty bottle or container for recycling.

A public consultation opened by the Scottish Government runs until September 25. People are being asked to share their thoughts on how a scheme could work best: the level of deposit, which products should have a deposit on them, where they should be able to take their empty containers to get the deposit back and whether they would like the option to donate the deposit instead.

The consultation is available at https://consult.gov.scot/environmentforestry/deposit-return-scheme.
