Hospitality Infographics

Open loop hospitality businesses, such as take away cafes or restaurants, act in the same way as any other retail point of sale in Scotland’s Deposit Return Scheme. When a consumer buys a sealed drink to take away, businesses will charge the 20p deposit to the consumer, as the container is likely leaving their premise. The consumer then receives the 20p deposit back once they return the empty container to a return location, whether that’s the location they bought the container from, or another return location.

Under closed loop hospitality, where the consumer is buying the drink to consume on site, the business will be able to choose whether to charge the 20p deposit or not. This is because it is expected that the container will not leave the premises. Examples of these types of businesses are restaurants and bars.
