At Beerwulf.com you don’t pay any surcharge. This is because not all bottles in the Beerwulf assortment carry such a surcharge. Some bottles that carry a surcharge may also not be accepted at all locations. In this case, this does not mean that you can’t hand your surcharge bottles in at your local recipient, but the choice is yours. Empty bottles that do not carry a surcharge can be thrown directly into a glass recycling bin.
You can recycle glass endlessly. The glass retains its quality. 1,000 kgs of used packaging glass makes 1,000 kgs of new glass. 1,000 kgs of raw material (sand, soda, lime) only makes 800 kgs of glass. The latter approach also consumes more energy. It is for this reason we say: bring your empty bottles to the recycling bin.
