Aldi launches deposit return scheme

Aldi is piloting a first deposit return scheme at its Bathgate store in Scotland’s West Lothian.

This will enable shoppers to return bottles and cans in exchange for a voucher to be redeemed against their shopping.

Customers can return single-use PET plastic or glass bottles from 50ml up to three litres, as well as aluminium drinks cans. The items can be deposited in a reverse vending machine in the store’s car park.

For each item deposited, customers will receive 10p in the form of a voucher, up to a maximum of £5.

As part of the trial, Aldi will gather key insights in preparation for Scotland’s deposit return scheme, which is due to launch in July 2022.

Richard Holloway, regional managing director for Aldi Scotland, said: “We hope local customers in Bathgate will embrace this trial and we will use their feedback to inform our plans as we prepare for the deposit return scheme roll out in Scotland.”
