We are working with a local Return Partner in Ireland to process empty KeyKegs for circular-materials reuse. Filter by collections, drop-off points, and postcode to find the nearest, easiest, and most cost-effective return solutions in your area.
KeyKeg is designed for circularity and is 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 are returned, the more we increase our circularity. We do not want to see designed-for-circularity KeyKegs incinerated or used as a landfill. So, our local and nationwide Return Partners support our ambitious sustainability goals by offering collections and/or drop-off points.
“Life is good! We had kegs on tap before covid. 400 outlets. Average 4 taps in each. 1,600 kegs tapped. Pubs, restaurants and hotels closed for up to 12 months. We left the kegs tapped. We gambled that wine would be ok. The wine poured perfect. We didn’t take back kegs. Our business survived because the kegs tapped maintained quality. Brilliant system!”

We actively seek new Return Partners to join our community and collect empty KeyKegs in their areas.
Connect with us and register your interest in being a Return Partner in Ireland for empty KeyKeg collections.
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
