What to do with your bottle of water before boarding the plane? At the Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport, passengers may donate their no longer required deposit bottles for a good cause. In both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 of BER, special collection containers bearing the inscription "Spende Dein Pfand" (Donate your Deposit) have been set up before the security checkpoints. These colourful containers are regularly emptied and cleaned by so-called “Deposit Officers” from the education and employment company Goldnetz gGmbH. They will also sort the empties. The Grüne Punkt (Green Dot) takes care of the transport and recycling of the bottles and ensures that the deposits are refunded. The money is for the benefit of the Berliner Tafel (Food Bank), which also operates a logistics centre for Brandenburg’s food banks.
