The official Carrier Bag Charge Scotland website is now accessible. The site is maintained by Zero Waste Scotland.
Any business or individual can find out more about the charge, the exemptions, the record keeping, the use of the proceeds, and any further guidance needed. Simply click here to visit.
The aim of the site is to cover all areas and answer all questions business owners and shoppers may have in regards to the regulations. The site also offers printable, editable fact sheets and customer notices. Businesses can post these in their stores to ensure customers are aware of the charge, which comes into force on the 20th October 2014.
The official Regulations can be found here. For more information on the Bag Charges, please see our ongoing blogs.
