Sustainability Check for Recycling of Beverage Packaging:
Reuse better than one-way containers with deposit better than curbside col-lection schemes (Green Dot systems)

Reusable packaging is not only environmentally but also from an economic and social perspective superior to one-way (single use) containers such as PET bottles, beverage cans and beverage cartons. Deposit systems ??" for reusable bottles as well as for one-way containers ??" are furthermore more sustainable than the collection of one-way containers in curbside collection schemes (also called Green Dot systems). This is one of the most important findings in the study “Reuse and Recycling Systems for Selected Beverage Packaging from a Sustainability Perspective” that the auditing and consulting organization PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has carried out for the German Environment Aid (Deutsche Umwelthilfe).
