Scotland plans to be the first UK country to add a deposit to some plastic drinking containers, cans and glass.
HDPE-made plastic bottles, which are typically used to carry milk, would not be included, but containers made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) - which typically carry fizzy drinks and water - will be subject to the deposit return.
The deposit ( 20p) will be added to the price of a single-use drinks container bought from a shop. The consumer will get their deposit back when they return the empty bottle or can to the retailer. All types of drinks and all containers above 50ml and up to three litres in size are included.
Businesses selling drinks which are opened and consumed on site - such as pubs and restaurants - will not have to charge the deposit to the public.
There will be two ways you can return your empty container - over the counter, or by using a reverse vending machine (RVM).
