Circularity Scotland Ltd. is a not-for-profit private company established by the industry to deliver the legal responsibilities of drinks producers under Scotland’s deposit return scheme regulations.
The company was set up more than two years ago by over 95% of the market in order to raise the investment and create the infrastructure needed for the industry’s producers, retailers, wholesalers and trade associations to meet their regulatory obligations.
Circularity Scotland was approved as a scheme administrator by the Scottish Government in 2021, with its Operating Plan was approved by SEPA the following year.
As well as handling the financial and logistical aspects of the scheme, Circularity Scotland actively helps drinks producers, importers, wholesalers and retailers to understand the support available to them for the implementation of the deposit return scheme. It also plays a part in educating the public about how the scheme will work for them and how it will benefit both the economy and the environment.
Being appointed as a scheme administrator allows Circularity Scotland to deliver a world-class deposit return scheme that works for everyone.
