Circle K Deposit Retention Scheme

Ireland’s new Deposit Return Scheme is now live

What is the Deposit Return Scheme?

When you buy a drink in a plastic bottle, aluminium or steel can that features the Re-turn logo, you pay a small deposit in addition to the price of the drink. When you return your empty and undamaged drink containers to participating Circle K sites, shops and supermarkets, you get your deposit back in full.

What are the benefits?

DRS Benefits - EU Target

Alignment to EU Recycling Targets

The Single Use Plastics (SUP) Directive is the main driver for the introduction of Deposit Return. We need to achieve the EU recycling targets of 77% by 2025, and 90% by 2029 and Deposit Return is a proven successful solution to achieving these.

DRS Benefits - Circular Economy

Circular Economy Initiative

As a circular economy initiative, the new Deposit Return Scheme aims to move away from the ‘take make and dispose’ culture to one of returning valuable materials, and keeping them in the economy for as long as possible.

How to return your containers?

  • Return your empty and undamaged containers with the Re-turn logo to any participating store or supermarket nationwide, including Circle K. A full list of our participating sites can be found below on this page.
  • These empty and undamaged containers can be brought to one of our Reverse Vending Machine (RVM) or manually over the counter. The RVM will then issue a voucher once all containers have been deposited. This voucher can be redeemed in store at the till and used towards a store purchase or a cash deposit refund. The RVM voucher must be used in the store of where the voucher was issued.
  • When depositing containers manually a member of staff will inspect the items to ensure they are undamaged and will then issue a voucher which can be used against your next purchase or a full cash refund.
