Tesco Ireland launches new Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) trial

31 May 2023
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, such as bottles and cans.
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.
