Thanks to new trials from Zero Waste Scotland’s partners you can get something back for recycling at IKEA in Scotland
At IKEA, shoppers will be able to recycle any glass, plastic or aluminium drinks containers purchased from the restaurant, shop, or vending machines in their Edinburgh and Glasgow stores. Once returned and deposited through the machine, for each item shoppers will be offered the choice of a 10p voucher to redeem in-store or a 10p donation to one of the stores’ selected charities.
Last year the Scottish Government made a commitment to pilot incentivised recycling systems for single use plastic, glass and aluminium containers in Scotland. So now you receive a reward for recycling bottles and cans at the locations below.
Each location collects different items and offers a different reward, so pop along and see what your local Recycle and Reward machine has to offer.
Linton Scarborough, Store Manager, IKEA Edinburgh, said:
“At IKEA, we are committed to ensuring sustainability is at the heart of what we do. We strive to be a good neighbour and we want to inspire and enable our customers to live a more sustainable life at home, helping them to save or generate energy, reduce or sort waste, use less or recycle water. We have a number of different sustainability initiatives in place in stores across the UK and also as a company, so we are thrilled to be the first business to trial the ‘Recycle and Reward’ scheme at both of the Scottish IKEA stores. We are excited about this great addition to IKEA Edinburgh and hope it will play a part in making sure recycling is always front of mind for both our customers and co-workers alike.”
