17 III 2013 - Refillable bottles are back in Paris!

​

The Paris administration decided to study the possible obligation for bottles to be returnable (including a deposit). This could apply to all glass and plastic bottles. Active before the 80's, this system was abandoned for disposable bottles excepted for restaurants, hotels,... 

​

The Paris idea is simply to copy the Germany or Alsace systems for private consumption and reduce the today public recycle cost of glass and plastics bottles.

​

This could be a big challenge for the retail business as to collect bottles means extra space, bottle management... all aspects that HOD business is facing daily so a great business opportunity in fact!
