Hello Martin,

A refill scheme is a cafe, bar, restaurant, club, hotel participating in
one of the many refill schemes where they agree to fill up anybody's water
bottle for free without any requirement to consume on the premises.    Self
serve is not a requirement.  A sticker or sign must be shown for an
establishment to be tagged as part of the refill scheme and just because a
barman fills up your bottle, one shouldn't tag a bar as part of a refill
scheme. Nor should an establishment be tagged as part of a refill scheme if
you need to fill your bottle up in the bathroom.

  There are  more small ones in the US and in specific European cities,
like Lucerne, Lausanne, and Berkeley. European Water Project will be
contributing to the creation of a 100% open data collaborative database of
establishments participating in the refill revolution.

best regards,
