IKEA Light Bulb Recycling Machine

For over ten years IKEA has recognised the need to collect used light bulbs and batteries and provided a manual collection service for customers to return ESbs and batteries.

The recycler is guided through the simple process by an exciting touch screen menu. The user then receives a reward incentive voucher, automatically dispensed by the machine.

IKEA wanted to increase bulb and battery recycling rates and initiated the development of the technology with reVend.
reVend has now installed Light Bulb Recycling machines.

The Light Bulb Reverse Vending Recycling Machines are sited in prominent positions for the Public to see the initiative in action as they need to be encouraged to improve recycling.
