Question ref. S6W-07831
Asked by: Fergus Ewing, Inverness and Nairn, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 5 April 2022


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-07108 by Lorna Slater on 22 March 2022, whether, at the time that the answer was provided, it had been advised by Circularity Scotland that the estimated number of reverse vending machines (RVMs) to be used for its Deposit Return Scheme would be around 5,000 rather 3,021, and, if so, for what reason this information was not disclosed in that answer.

Current status: Answered by Lorna Slater on 29 April 2022


As set out in the answer to S6W-07830 on 29 April 2022, we have had no further discussions with Circularity Scotland Ltd regarding any estimated numbers of reverse vending machines since the publication of the amended final Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment for our Deposit Return Scheme, and do not recognise the figure of around 5,000.
