The recycling and waste management industry has made significant progress over the years, moving recycling from a marginal issue right into the mainstream.
Households and businesses up and down the country and the Government now recognise that recycling is crucial for the environment, for sustainability and for the economy. The recent waste review once again underlined the UK Coalition Government commitment to supporting and boosting recycling, energy from waste and waste reduction.

IKEA, Sweden, the world renown and leading international retail corporation is fully committed to increasing its used light bulb and domestic battery recycling rates and has worked closely with RVC on the development of this new recycling technology.

It has already installed the light bulb recycling machine in its Wembley, Lakeside, Wednesbury stores prior to a national UK roll-out. RVC will also be installing its unique light bulb recycling machine technology in IKEA stores throughout Europe starting with Germany and Denmark.

RVC believes that its unique light bulb and domestic battery reverse vending recycling technology will make a significant contribution to achieving these national objectives.

International distributors for this unique recycling technology are needed and RVC would be pleased to hear from interested parties.
