Fact #20

In Norway, when recycling metal drink cans and plastic bottles, you receive back what is called a PANT, some sort of tax that you pre-pay when buying the drinks (adding to the drink’s price). Each drink can give you back between 0,10 and 0,25 cents if you return the packages to a specific machine located in supermarkets.

In order to receive the value of this PANT back, we need to bring all of the bottles and drink cans to this automatic machine (normally inside supermarkets), we put them inside it, it rolls the bottle in order to read the bar code and, in the end, we receive a receipt with the value that we are to receive (in money or by discounting that in our supermarket bill).
