How do I have the deposit that I’ve paid out to consumers reimbursed?

For very small collection quantities, you can have the deposit disbursed by returning the bottles and cans directly at reverse vending machines. This does not require registration.

If collection takes place in sealed bags via Recycling Pfand Österreich or via your logistics partner, the single-use deposit of the collected empty containers will be disbursed on a regular basis after payment has been made. Registration is required for this process.

Disbursement for collections at reverse vending machines also takes place on a regular basis. Details on the disbursement can be found in the collection agreements. The reverse vending machine must be accredited and the collector must register themselves.
