Action leader(s)

Ministry of Environment


The packaging deposit was established by the Ministry of the Environment for glass and plastic bottles in 2005. Every customer, who buys a carbonised drink, beer, some other low-alcohol beverage, juice, juice concentrate or nectar, also pays the deposit, which is indicated separately on the price label.
