go back

Which products do I have to collect?

In the case of manual collection, those products that were sold via the sales outlet or containers in identical packaging must be collected.

In principle:

  • If a container size (e.g. 0.5-litre PET bottle or 0.25-litre can) is sold at a sales outlet, containers of this size must also be collected, including brands other than those available from the sales outlet in question.
  • The collection is limited to the unit quantities usually purchased.
  • Example: A sausage stand operator does NOT have to take back 20 single-use deposit containers in one go, as they only sells 2-3 bottles or cans per purchase on average.

They do NOT have to take back beverage cans if she/he only sells PET bottles.
