Do you sell canned beverages? A deposit on cans for water, soft drinks, beer, and other low alcoholic drinks has been introduced. On every can a deposit of at least €0.15 (15 cents) is charged. Supermarkets (and manned petrol stations along highways) are obliged to take in the cans.
The manufacturers of such canned beverages are responsible for the implementation of the deposit system.
