▋Thirsty consumers are comfortable buying drinks from vending machines, but now reverse vending machines will take their empty bottles back.
The City of Wyndham in Melbourne’s outer west are planning a trial of the machines which exchange empty cans and bottles for promotional vouchers. A single machine could hold up to 2,000 bottles or cans.
The machines would reward users with a voucher for a local attraction or an entry in a competition. A machine at the aquatic centre might grant a voucher for pool entry or use of the gymnasium.
This is about just trying to get the recycling message out there in a new and innovative way.
