Tesco Ireland has officially launched its new Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) trial for PET plastic drinks bottles and aluminium/steel drinks cans at its Tesco Extra Store at Donore Road in Drogheda. 

Ahead of DRS commencing nationwide in February 2024, the retailer is running two in-store DRS demonstration trials, at Drogheda Extra and Malahide Express stores. 

The government’s Deposit Return Scheme is being introduced to encourage more people to recycle drinks containers by giving a discount off the grocery bill for shoppers who use the in-store recycle machine.

Minister of State Ossian Smyth TD attended the initiative’s launch alongside Tesco Ireland’s communications director Rosemary Garth, country operations manager Darrin Honer and store manager Eoin Killoran.
