The Solution is Less Pollution

The Beverage Container Refund Scheme incentivises the return of single-use beverage containers by applying a refundable deposit on the sales of beverages. This circular economy system entices returns of single-use beverage containers by consumers, which are then gathered and sorted by BCRS Malta for onward sale as recyclable material.

Our Mission is to contribute heavily to the reduction of single-use beverage container waste in Malta through the deployment of a National deposit refund system powered by the latest IT and engineering technologies.

BCRS Malta Ltd. was incorporated by the Malta Beverage Producers Association, the Malta Beverage Importers Association and the Malta Beverage Retailers Association with the obligation, amongst others, to assume the collective extended producer responsibility on behalf of producers, importers and retailers of single-use beverage containers, and take the necessary  measures to achieve beverage container collection targets in terms of the Beverage Containers Recycling Regulations 2020.

BCRS Malta was granted a license by Circular Economy Malta to establish and operate the national beverage container refund system and take responsibility of all collected single use beverage containers.

BCRS Malta is investing in privately funded infrastructure to operate the national beverage container refund scheme. Investments include the construction and setting up of the first privately funded Clearing Centre and sorting plant in Malta dedicated to beverage container waste, a network of Reverse Vending Machines around the Maltese islands which is not only a first of its kind for Malta, but which will also be powered by state-of-the-art engineering and IT technologies, connected through IoT, and a roll-out of monitoring systems underpinning the operation of the Scheme.
