Here are the details of the last winner 

 

Recycle and Reward

The machine will automate the collection of used beverage containers (used Plastic drink bottles and used drink cans) and reward the recycler with a reward voucher.

By rewarding the recycler we know that we are able to increase recycling activity and awareness, whilst reducing litter.

Reduction in Waste Costs

The reVend Reverse Vending Machine installed at Queens Hospital uses state of the art Reverse Vending technology and even compacts items by up to 90% of their original volumes and stores them ready for recycling

With a large storage capacity and compaction of the items, the machine requires less emptying, reducing staff time as waste volume and quantity is reduced in other onsite bins. When the machine is full, the machine sends email alerts allowing for the resources to be collected and stored on site until a large enough quantity is collected. Installing one Reverse Vending Machine has the equivalent C02 saving of taking 2,000 cars off the road.

Queens Hospital is the first to install this unique reverse vending recycling machine in the UK. Customers who recycle their used drink cans and drink plastic bottles will automatically receive a reward voucher from the recycling machine to use in-store.

 

The new range of recycling machines will help increase national recycling amounts and assist companies and organisations comply with their recycling targets and environmental recycling obligations.
