A popular Glasgow health and beauty store has introduced its first deposit return scheme.

Boots has installed a Reverse Vending Machine in its Sauchiehall Street store and another in Perth to encourage customers to recycle.

Shoppers can return empty plastic, metal and glass drink containers from 50ml up to 3 litres.

And for each drink container deposited, you will receive a voucher with ten Advantage Card points to put towards purchases in-store.

There is a maximum of 25 containers per transaction.

Paul Dunne, transformation director at Boots UK, said: “We are pleased to be able to trial another way for customers to recycle their plastic, metal and glass drink containers.

"This is an opportunity for us to review the operational impact on installations of Reverse Vending Machines in our stores, as well as the practicalities of running a Deposit Return Scheme on the high street.”

The move comes after the Scottish Government announced plans to introduce a deposit return scheme for drinks containers across the country.

The scheme will be the first national scheme in the UK, and will cover glass and plastic bottles, as well as aluminium and steel drinks cans, sold from any Scottish store.
