Must all kinds of drinking packages need to be included in an approved return system?
Since 2006, a regulation has been in force stating that all parties professionally serving or importing drinks ready for consumption in plastic bottles or metal cans must ensure that the product is included in an approved return system. (This does not apply to drinks that mainly consist of dairy products or vegetable, fruit or berry drinks.)
Since 2015 manufacturers and importers of ”saft” can voluntary enter the Swedish recycling system, and since 2018 the same applies to producers and importers of juices and smoothies. Since 2021 the sam also applies to producers and importers of dairy products in metal cans.
