Hungarian beverage manufacturers are asking the government that the costs of the redemption system for beverage packaging should not exceed the international level, which is half of the current extended producer responsibility fee, according to profitline.hu.

The representatives of the Hungarian beverage manufacturers welcomed the introduction of the redemption system for beverage packaging but expressed their fear that high costs would increase prices and reduce turnover.

Half of the extended producer responsibility fee is proposed because this cost level corresponds to the fees payable in the redemption systems of neighboring countries and European practice.

The manufacturers say the legislation for the redemption system is reaching a critical stage, with the need to announce the fees for its creation and operation by the end of November.
