REFILL tap water points are set to be rolled out in every local authority in Scotland in the next two years.

The move is part of Scottish Water's Your Water, Your Life campaign which launched earlier this year.

Councils across Scotland are being consulted to identify the best locations, with the aim of having the first 10 installed by the end of March 2019.

Douglas Millican, Scottish Water chief executive, said: “Our research shows that people feel very positively towards the quality of Scotland’s tap water – now these state-of-the-art taps can provide access to enable water drinkers to enjoy it while on the go by carrying and using refillable bottles.”

Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham MSP said: “By encouraging people to top up from the tap using refillable bottles, we will help cut down on our use of plastics and promote the benefits of hydration building on Scottish Water’s Your Water, Your Life campaign."
