Greene King - Belhaven Beer - Bottles

Deposit Return Scheme

As Greene King, we comply with Scotland's Deposit Return Scheme, which will be live from the 16th of August 2023.  

To comply with the scheme all pubs, hotels, and play sites will be operating a closed-loop system which means: 

  • We won’t charge customers a deposit 
  • We will be collecting the containers to be sent directly to the scheme administrator 
  • We won’t be operating a return point as we sell only drinks for consumption on-site  

In our Belhaven shop, we will be operating an open loop system, which means: 

  • We must charge a 20p deposit for all participating containers 
  • The customer gets the 20p deposit back when they return the empty container to where they bought it or another return point.
