Two bidders in contention for deposit system implementation in Latvia

Two candidates have entered into the competition for the introduction of a beverage packaging deposit system, Latvian Radio reported October 1.

One – Depozīta iepakojuma operators – is offered by a beverage producer, the other – Nulles depozīts – by a waste manager, in cooperation with individual producers and the merchant association.

The State Environmental Service will have to take a decision within three months.

The assessment of the requests received will take place in two rounds, first assessing the compliance of applicants with the minimum requirements within a month and, in the second round, assessing the compliance of the applications with the eligibility criteria developed by the Environmental Service.

The two bidders for the deposit system operator estimate the investment at around €25 million.

The best bidder will receive the right to enter into a contract to provide a beverage packaging deposit system for a period of seven years starting in 2022.
