What are the benefits of reverse vending machines?

RVMs are automated machines which offer your business an efficient, convenient and cost-effective way for your customers to recycle their plastic bottles and aluminium cans.

Introducing reverse vending machines also allows your businesses to move away from mixed recycling collections, to a single stream solution which will enhance our ability to deliver improved material recovery.

Further, with an incentive to use the machines, this can increase the footfall in your premises, clearly display your commitment to sustainable development and move towards introducing a deposit return scheme.

How does a reverse vending machine work?

  1. Empty plastic bottles and drinks cans are placed in the reverse vending machine
  2. The material is scanned and using advanced technology to identify the associated barcode, the material is read and registered against a database
  3. A coupon is printed, offering the customer either a discount or charitable donation
  4. The machine sorts, compacts and stores empty bottles and drinks cans
