We have proven that circularity is achievable in the industrial beverage-packaging market. To further our ambitious goals for sustainability, we are assembling a worldwide Return Network of partners to gather and process empty KeyKegs for reuse as materials in the production of new sustainable Kegs.
Our Return Network enables sustainable KeyKeg recycling initiatives that complement existing local waste-management streams. Connect with us for more information about sustainability and our Return Network. We also actively seek new partners to join our community, to collect and/or be a drop-off point for empty KeyKegs in their areas.

KeyKeg is designed for circularity and compliant with ISO 18604, the international standard for packaging-material recycling and the environment. This means you can return your empty KeyKegs to reuse the materials for producing new KeyKegs. The more empty KeyKegs that are returned, the more we increase our circularity. We do not want to see designed-for-circularity KeyKegs incinerated or used as landfill, so our local and nationwide Return Partners support our ambitious sustainability goals by offering collections and/or drop-off points.
KeyKegs are designed for circularity. Wherever possible, empty KeyKegs are either collected by or dropped-off at our Return Partners to be processed into the raw circular materials that we reuse for new KeyKegs. We prefer KeyKegs to be returned, but they may also be added to local recycling programmes.
Find a Return Partner in your region or contact us if you have further questions.
Always deflate KeyKegs in a well-ventilated area. Use the red KeyKeg deflating tool or Micro Matic dispense head with built-in deflating switch. Keep the red KeyKeg deflating tool for future use.
Once deflated, there are several recycling options for empty KeyKegs.
We have created a video for you to watch that demonstrates the KeyKeg deflation process.
If you have a large number of empty KeyKegs to return, we recommend palletizing and wrapping them. However, your chosen Return Partner may prefer a different approach, so please read the specific ‘Prepare empty KeyKegs’ information for each partner.
Please note: KeyKegs should always be deflated as soon as they are empty.
The number of empty KeyKegs that fit on a 48" × 40" (120 cm x 100 cm) block pallet is shown below
Empty KeyKegs for First Mile should be sent to the Oldbury address below, but please e-mail them first.
