About Us

The campaign is led by The Association for the Protection of Rural Scotland, and other organisations have quickly joined as partners. Right now, we have over one hundred supporter organisations from business, the non-government and community sectors, including the Marine Conservation Society, Changeworks Recycling, Triathlon Scotland, Whitmuir Organics, Eco Congregations, Cornelius Beers, Friends of the Earth Scotland, WWF Scotland, Spokes, Surfers Against Sewage, Ramblers Scotland, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and lots of others. Together, they represent over 300,000 people in Scotland.

Most importantly, we’re the voice of the 79% of people in Scotland who support introducing a deposit return system.



Our office is located at Dolphin House, 4 Hunter Square, Edinburgh, EH1 1QW.


“Excel Vending have been actively following the campaign for a Deposit Return System in Scotland for a long time and we are delighted to officially support the Have You Got The Bottle? campaign. We have always been an environmentally aware company and we hope that reverse vending becomes part of the solution to Scotland’s recycling challenge.  We believe it is just the right thing to do.”
