Mohu, the waste management unit of Hungarian oil and gas company MOL, will have around 2,000 bottle deposit return sites, dubbed REponts, in place when a mandatory bottle deposit system is rolled out at the start of next year, MOL said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
As more partners join the system, the number of shops with bottle deposit return automats could reach 4,000-5,000, MOL said.
Mohu earlier called a tender to supply the automats and selected Tomra Collection Hungary Kft and Envipco Holding NV.
The deposit fee for the mandatory system has been set at a uniform HUF 50 per bottle.
Mohu, which took over a 35-year nationwide municipal waste management concession in the summer, aims to raise the recycling rate for glass and plastic bottles to 90% within three years.
