Organization to deal with the deposit and return scheme for bottles and cans being set up

Two associations of soft drink and beer makers and two retail associations are in talks on setting up a new organization to deal with the deposit and return scheme for PET bottles and drink cans. By law, the scheme will be launched as of January 1, 2022. The organization will invest €80m into setting the system up, and its annual running costs are estimated at €33m. The legislation has set a minimum deposit for PET bottle at 12 cents and for cans at 10 cents. The organization plans to charge 12 cents for both bottles and cans and is even considering charging 15 cents.
