Which products are exempt from the deposit system?

The deposit covers all sealed or mostly sealed single-use drinks containers made of plastic or metal with a filling capacity of 0.1 to 3 litres.

  • Exempt are:
  • Drink multi-packs
  • Drink bottles made of glass or metal with seals or caps made of plastic
  • Drink bottles for supplements and liquid foods that are intended and used for special medical purposes
  • Drinks made from milk and milk-based products

There is no deposit on syrups either; although these are drinks in the broadest sense, they are not intended for direct consumption.
