Tesco in Slovakia selects TOMRA as reverse vending supplier for upcoming deposit return system

Asker, Norway

Tesco, one of the leading retailers in Slovakia, has selected global reverse vending leader TOMRA as the supplier of its infrastructure for collecting beverage containers for recycling. Customers at Tesco stores across the country can start returning their empty containers to TOMRA reverse vending machines when Slovakia’s new deposit return system launches on 1 January 2022.

The reverse vending machines will be gradually installed in approximately 140 Tesco stores throughout Slovakia. Reverse vending machines enable the return of beverage containers in a deposit return system for recycling, for greater efficiency and convenience for both consumers and stores. Under Slovakia’s new deposit system, return points for cans and PET bottles and cans will be required in grocery retailers with an area of more than 300 m2.
