Deposit Bottle Drop-off Points

Returnable bottles do not belong in the garbage container! There are two reasons for this: Firstly, producing beverage bottles and cans requires vast quantities of raw materials. To prevent the need for continuous extraction of more raw materials for additional bottles and cans, it is crucial to recycle empty bottles and cans. The prerequisite for reusing and effectively recycling these materials is the local collection and sorting of empty bottles at designated deposit stations.

Secondly, deposit bottles possess economic value. In a world marked by extreme wealth inequality (which has remained relatively constant over centuries), even the smallest financial gains hold significant importance for many individuals. While a single deposit bottle may not cover the cost of a meal, a collection of several bottles can accumulate into a meaningful sum.

Deposits that end up in the trash have adverse effects on both the environment and individuals who seek to earn extra income by returning them. To ensure that deposit bottles reach their intended destinations (people in need and the designated deposit stations), the establishment of drop-off points distributed throughout the city has proven successful. This system offers convenience to those unsure of where to place their empty bottles, discourages littering in parks, and aids deposit collectors in planning their routes.
