Dabba is a deposit return scheme implemented in the Auvergne-Rhone Alpes region. It was launched in Grenoble in June 2020, offering a range of reusable containers for restaurants, businesses or catering services.
It has since partnered up with over 80 restaurants, offering its users the ability to order food via the Dabba app and paying a deposit in return for a reusable container. Users simply need to wash their containers and return them to any restaurant that is part of the Dabba network.
The ability to return containers to any partner means there is a vast selection of collection points which has enabled Dabba to prevent over 40,000 disposable packaging units of waste.
