What is Reverse Vending ?

The Term refers to consumers inserting an empty single use PET bottle or drinks can into a vending machine and getting a cash return i.e. a reverse of traditional beverage vending machines.

The technology to do this is very advanced and relies on laser and camera technologies to 100% identify and count all types and sizes of beverage containers.

The Technology also compacts the material for storage efficiency and back-end logistics

In what markets is Reverse vending used?

Traditionally in legislated bottle deposit markets where consumers return empty containers to retailers/stores to reclaim the deposit they paid when the full goods were purchased.
