When I was a child reverse vending machines would be in every supermarket. Returning the bottles was always a highlight because I could see how much money I got back. Now after years without them, they are finally celebrating their comeback and I am really happy about it!

- swing-top bottles,
- bottle crates,
- deposit beer bottles
