Do you sell soft drinks or water in small plastic bottles? From 1 July 2021 a deposit on small plastic bottles has been introduced. For every bottle with a capacity of less than 1 litre a 15 cent (€0.15) deposit is charged. The deposit for larger bottles (1 litre or more) will remain €0.25.
Supermarkets, shops in railway stations and petrol stations along the motorway are obliged to take in the empty bottles.
Manufacturers of these bottles for soft drinks and water are responsible for the implementation of the deposit system.
- manufacturers of bottled soft drinks and water
