The Danish Deposit System

Denmark has a deposit system for plastic and glass bottles and aluminium drinks cans.

Each time you buy a drink in a supermarket or local store you will be charged with a small deposit, ranging from DKK 1 for a small can and up to 3 DKK for a 1,5L plastic bottle.

The bottles and cans that are included in the deposit system will be marked with a small logo, saying “Pant”.

You can return the bottles and cans using the automated bottle banks (Flaskeautomater). Please bring the printed ticked to the checkout at the supermarket.
