Poland: Position paper on the introduction of a deposit system for beverage packaging

12 Nov 2020 − 

The Polish industry body for waste management, Departament Gospodarki Odpadami (DGO) is examining the introduction of a deposit system for beverage packaging in Poland.

The DGO hosted an industry conference on the subject at the beginning of October. Shortly after environmental, plastics and recycling associations presented a joint position paper addressed to the DGO. This basically comprises seven key bullet points that need to be taken into account, according to the signatories.

First of all, a deposit system should contribute to the structural economic development in Poland and create conditions for the use of raw materials at a national level. Especially Polish companies should be able to benefit both from the establishment of new business models and from the increased supply of recycled materials on the market.
