Deposit Return Scheme: Retailer Information

  • Sun 12 November, 2023

Ireland’s new Deposit Return Scheme will go live on February 1st, 2024. If you sell ‘in-scope’ drinks containers (plastic bottles, aluminium or steel drinks containers which have a capacity up to 3 litres) on your premises for take away or online – you must register with Re-Turn.

All retailers (unless granted a Take Back Exemption) are legally obliged to provide a Take Back/Deposit Return service for consumers and play a key role in the Deposit Return Scheme nationwide.

Useful links to the Re-Turn website for Information on the Deposit Return Scheme including how to register, guides, tool kits, slide decks of past webinars and handouts:
