It is hoped that over time, this Reverse Vending Machine (RVM) will reduce the carbon footprint of the waste management operation. This will be achieved by reducing waste volumes, on site separation, and through reducing waste collections. This reduction will be measured with the auditable data trail created on an online portal.The programme is part of a wider waste initiative by the Trust aimed at supporting the Trust in improving compliance, knowledge & skills, reducing environmental impact, reducing production and making residual waste a commodity.

By installing the RVM’s, The Trust became the ‘First Hospital Trust in the World to install a ReVend Reverse Vending Machine’. The Tust hope to use this project as a case study for future projects and to set an example to other hospital trusts and businesses as to the possibilities waste can produce.

NHS Bart’s Health The Royal London Hospital have now added a “Donate” function to their unique reVend Reverse Vending Recycling Machine.

At The Royal London Hospital, staff,patients and visitors will now be able to recycle any glass, plastic or aluminium drinks containers and make a donation to the London’s Air Ambulance Charity .

While managing the waste the Barts Health NHS Trust and Skanska partnership have built links with local business and our contractors, encouraging them to become future proof. Skanska and Barts Health NHS trust are helping to introduce Reverse Vending Machines into the UK Market.

The Barts Health and Skanska partnership are already using the case study to encourage further business growth. Sharing the study with other companies in the hope of sharing environmental best practice.

Operating transparently, the commitment shown is already encouraging future machines for crushing renal plastic bottles. Reducing the shipment of ‘air’ is essential in reducing the carbon footprint and costs of the waste operations.
