VK: Heffing op eenmalige draagtassen in Schotland vanaf 20 oktober

23 oktober 2014

Scotland aims to slash its huge consumption of single-use carrier bag through the introduction of a minimum 5p charge on every bag dispensed. With over 800 million given out every year, Scots currently use the most per head of any part of the UK and a significant number of these end up as litter.
The charge covers all retailers, no matter the size or type. It will apply equally to bags made from plastic, paper and biodegradable materials. Shoppers can avoid the charge by remembering to re-use bags or bringing bags for life for their purchases. The Single Use Carrier Bags Charge (Scotland) Regulations 2014 came into force on 20 October 2014 (Nieuwsbericht The Scottish Government, 20 oktober 2014).
