Hungarian beverage makers and retailers have drafted a strategy for rolling out deposits on bottles and cans to boost the recycling rate, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The strategy, drafted by the national associations for mineral water and soft drink bottlers, brewers, and distillers, together with the country's biggest commerce associations, aims to support the work of government decision-makers.
Under legislation approved last year, bottle and can deposits will be introduced from July 2023 as part of the government's climate and environmental protection scheme.
Beverages in around 3.5 billion bottles and cans are sold in Hungary each year.
