Austria to add €0.25 deposit to price of cans and plastic bottles

The Austrian government has announced that a €0.25 deposit will be added to all plastic bottles and aluminium cans, which will be reimbursed to consumers once the containers are returned. 

The implementation of the scheme is set to be completed by 2025. 

“Austria gets a deposit system. In this way, we protect nature and ensure that plastic bottles and cans are professionally recycled. A year ago, we decided exactly that. Together with the economy, we have now determined the first details. We are now one big step closer to the introduction of the disposable deposit in 2025,” said Austria’s climate protection minister, Leonore Gewessler.
