Do delivery services have to demand a deposit for drinks when delivering food?

Yes. The deposit must also be levied when the products are sold via delivery services as part of food orders. The food delivery service does not have to collect empty containers or reimburse the deposit to the consumers. However, as the consumers have to return these single-use drinks containers at other collection points, which gives rise to additional expenditure, a compensatory payment is generally to be paid by the delivery services to Recycling Pfand Österreich.
