Information about the project.
Disposable items increase in number and lead to increased litter in the public environment. In a new project, a deposit on disposable mugs for take away is now being tested. The idea is to see if it provides increased source sorting and reduced litter in public environments. The deposit concept will be tested in Örnsköldsvik's city center in the summer of 2021 during the period 1 June - 31 August. Seven cafés are participating in the project carried out by RISE, together with Örnsköldsvik municipality and Bower.
We hope that you as a consumer also want to try ordering your take away mug. To make it easy to sort at source, seven source sorting bins have been placed in the city center. Mugs and collars are sorted in the container marked with paper, which is an important step for you to get the deposit amount back. With the help of the Bower app, you can see where these vessels are located. You also use the app to register your mug using the QR code on the mug's collar. You also get the deposit amount back via the app.
