Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, will commit her government to the introduction of a deposit return scheme, Sky News understands.

The initiative, which aims to cut single-use plastic waste, is partly prompted by Sky’s Ocean Rescue campaign. It will apply to plastic and glass bottles, as well as aluminium cans.

The Scottish government had already commissioned a detailed study into a deposit return scheme (DRS) and Sky News understands its ministers have been following Sky’s campaign closely, with concerns raised in its coverage fed into their decision-making.
