UK glass manufacturers have warned the Scottish deposit recycling scheme, which includes glass, will "prompt a switch to plastic packaging" and could result in "plant closures and job losses". It also expressed disappointment that the views of industry and retailers have been "ignored" and that post-DRS, the current glass collection rate will be cut from 67% to 60%.
