What is a Deposit Return System?

An effective deposit return system (DRS) requires transparent and systematic management of material and financial flows. RLG designs and operates services and solutions to meet the highest safety requirements and efficiency goals. As a partner to governments, retail and manufacturing companies, RLG offers comprehensive systems solutions, including collection, returns, counting, clearing, and reporting services for single-use containers subject to a deposit. 

Why focus on Deposit Returns?

  • The items included in most schemes are responsible for significant ocean pollution
  • Businesses need to implement more circular processes to meet sustainability goals
  • Plastic, glass, and aluminum containers are easy to recycle and maintain their quality
  • Significant global pressure from lawmakers to increase recycling and minimize litter
