Launch Of New Deposit Return Scheme Set For February 1st, 2024.

All 4 major Supermarkets at least, here in Thurles, have been busy preparing for the launch of the new Deposit Return Scheme, same expected to commence with effect from Thursday February 1st next, 2024.

This new scheme will see consumers pay a small deposit on drinks contained in plastic bottles and cans. However, this added purchase cost will be given back, when consumers return their drink containers to these participating supermarkets.

Drinks containers with an individual Re-Turn Logo are expected to start appearing in shops from February 1st; however, only cans and plastic bottles featuring that logo will be accepted into these now ready to roll reverse vending machines.

With this long awaited new venture about to be launched, it is hoped that the scheme will help Ireland to reach its recycling goals; part of the current EU single-use plastics directive.
