I guess that the Scotish returnable bottles will have their own barcode to prevent none-deposit bottles being returned.
Also hilariously, or predictably, the Scots Greens didn’t think of this either. So, if I’m a whole of UK producer, apply for my DRS bar code and just slap it in all of my products, obviously I will pay the deposit on the Scottish sold stuff but not for the rest of the UK. Those rUK empties could then be returned by individuals into the scheme, creating a thriving black market and bankrupting circularity Scotland. The whole shit show is one massively funny car crash.

So, we just load up the empties in Newcastle – make friends with a few bar owners etc – Carlisle or Berwick and drive across the border. Sure, we only get credit but 40 cases of beer bottles is £200 which is 10 bottles of gin at Aldi which is sold back to the bar owner who sells it at full mark up off the books. Nice little money spinner there.
Be plenty of Transits, um, transiting, no?
Actually, anyone want to hire a couple of us to make a TV show? The Boys From Bath Stuff? How To Rook The Scots? Summat like that?
