In 345 stores in Hungary, Spar will implement the mandatory return of beverage cans and bottles using return machines, the department store chain’s communications director told Telex.

The government decree was published in the Official Gazette on Wednesday evening, which states that in settlements with a population of more than 1,000 people, food vendors and distributors with a sales area of ​​more than 400 square meters will be obliged to provide a refund for certain products. This includes packaging all beverage products in glass, metal and plastic bottles and cans with a capacity ranging from 1 dL to 3 litres. Milk containers and milk-based beverage products are an exception and will not be returned. The decree also revealed that a recovery fee of fifty Hungarian forints per piece will be paid for non-reusable products with a mandatory recovery fee.

“Spar Hungary is prepared to the best of its ability and awaits the launch on January 1, 2024.”

“In the past six months, our staff has tried to prepare for several options based on ever-changing information, and in the coming days we will make final decisions based on knowledge of the law,” wrote Mark Maczelka, SPAR’s head of communications. .

He added that in collaboration with Mol’s waste franchise, Mohu Zrt, they are currently installing recycling equipment in their stores.
