National deposit return scheme.
National law no. 31/2019 for the approval of Emergency Ordinance 74/2018, which amends and clarifies aspects related to packaging and packaging waste management, introduced a deposit return system for drinks containers.
Also, a minimum of 5% of the packaging weight that producers put on the market each year must be reusable. This percentage is to be increased by 5% every year until 2025 inclusive. Zero Waste Romania and the Reloop Platform are campaigning for increased use of reusable packaging.
