More RVMs roll out


BOOTS is the latest high street retailer to launch a DRS trial in Scotland.

The pharmacy-led retailer has installed reverse vending machines at two stores: Boots Perth High Street and Boots Glasgow Sauchiehall Street.

As part of the trial, customers can return empty plastic, metal and glass drinks containers from 50ml up to three litres and receive 10 Boots Advantage Card points in exchange. Under the trial, there is a limit of 25 containers per transaction.

Paul Dunne, transformation director at Boots UK said: “This is an opportunity for us to review the operational impact on installations of reverse vending machines in our stores.”
