Infinitum owns and operates a deposit system for recyclable beverage cans and non-refillable plastic bottles in Norway. All cans and bottles labeled with the deposit symbol are returnable, either at a reverse vending machine or at one of the many retailers that sell beverages with the symbol. Containers of 0.5-liters or less pledge one Norwegian krone, while every unit of 0.5-liters or more pledge 2.5 Norwegian kroner. Look for the deposit symbol if you do not know if your empties are included in the deposit system or how much money you will get in return.
When you return your empties, you get back the deposit you paid when you bought the beverage. You are also doing a great service to the environment and to society. Every returned empty is recycled in an efficient way to avoid the waste of valuable resources. Each bottle and can is like a small bundle of energy because of its material, and by returning them, you make sure that the energy is not wasted. Do something small for something big, and return your empties!
