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 eighty 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.


“A Scottish deposit return system ticks a lot of boxes – it’s good for our business, good for our customers and good for our environment. We would welcome the opportunity to take back our customers’ empty drinks containers, for which they receive a small deposit. No doubt such a scheme would be popular with existing customers, but it would also likely attract new ones and would increase footfall – and possibly sales – in our shop.”
