Deposit bottles

Surinaamse Brouwerij currently has 2 returnable bottles, a brown 1 liter bottle more known as the Djogo and the brown 250 ml bottle for Parbo Bier and Parbo Radler.
The deposit process is very simple; You buy a beer in a 1 liter bottle at the supermarket or another store and pay srd 5,00 extra. When you return this bottle you will receive srd 5,00 back. The bottle then goes into the return process to be used again in the production of glass bottles. So if you, as a consumer, hand in all your bottles, you can contribute to almost 100% recycling.

Deposit bottles and crates can be returned to our PC Shop at the Brewery every day from Monday to Friday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. We have to conclude that the deposit process in Suriname is not yet optimal, while in other countries it has proven to have a positive influence on the behavior of consumers when causing litter. Consumers will have a financial incentive to hand in packaging instead of throwing it away or leaving it behind. In addition, there will be people who will be encouraged to pick up and return packaging material from the litter. This is expected to reduce the amount of litter.

Deposit bottles

Surinaamse Brouwerij has over 68 years multiple deposit bottles in use namely: of the Parbo Beer brand the brown 1 liter bottle more known as the Djogo and of the locally produced Heineken ® brand the 25 cl and 60 cl bottle packs.

Deposit bottles have proven useful in other parts of the world because they are more environmentally friendly than bottles without deposits. This is mainly because the clean bottles that are returned can be used again and thus much less litter ends up in the environment. If you hand in your empty bottles, you contribute to a cleaner environment and recycling. So be smart and turn it in!

The deposit process is simply explained as follows; You buy a beer for example in a 1 liter bottle at the supermarket or another store and pay srd 5.00 extra. When you return this bottle empty you receive srd 5.00 back. Then the bottle goes into the return process to be used again in production. Deposit is also applicable to the Parbo Beer Crate and Heineken crate.

PC SHOP: Brouwerijweg #1 (Saron), Mon to Fri between 08:00h-16:00h
