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.
