What is a Deposit Return System?

Many countries are introducing a Deposit Return System (DRS) to improve the quantity and quality of recycling. This means consumers pay a slightly increased cost, which works like a deposit when buying certain products.

Once the packaging is empty, they return the item to a designated point for recycling in exchange for their money back or vouchers.

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 alumium containers are easy to recycle and maintain their quality
  • Significant global pressure from lawmakers to increase recycling and minimize litter
