PENNY Romania has prepared the entire network of over 360 stores nationwide for the launch of the Deposit-Return System on November 30. The company invested 21.2 million euros in equipping the stores and in the necessary infrastructure for the equipment.

“All PENNY stores are prepared for the introduction of the Guarantee-Return System in Romania, so that citizens can bring the packaging to any of our stores. We invested 21.2 million euros in the RVM – Reverse Vending Machine equipment, as well as in the infrastructure necessary to place the equipment for operation (containers, wiring, connections, surveillance, etc.). We have also trained our colleagues to be able to provide the necessary support to customers using the equipment for the first time. We also encourage our customers to bring plastic, glass, or metal packaging to PENNY stores for recycling. The launch of the Deposit-Return System is a necessary step for national education regarding sustainability and environmental responsibility”, said Daniel Gross, CEO of PENNY Romania

PENNY stores have been equipped for taking over the waste included in the system, in partnership with TOMRA and RVM Systems, with 6 models of devices available in the network, adapted to each store, 3 made by each supplier. At the same time, all new store openings include from this year the equipment necessary to collect plastic, glass, or metal packaging, necessary for the operation of the Deposit-Return System.
