Reverse Vending Machine Launched at Islamabad

The first of its kind reverse vending machines for plastic (RVM) was presented by Malik Amin Aslam, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Climate Change, in the Jinnah Super Market in Islamabad on Saturday. The distributor facilitates the recycling of people on the go. The machine may be used with plastic bottles of any brand.

The RVM is like a distributor, but the other way around. The consumer must push the start button on the touch screen, and the RVM will open a slot to take the plastic bottle (of any brand and size). The RVM will compress the bottle once deposited to be ready to be recycled at the next stage. When it's crushed, the machine will provide you with an Rs.100 stimulus, i.e. a KFC buys discount. Malik Amin Aslam also informed the media that the model will firstly be observed for two months and applied in other Pakistani cities in the event of success.

The RVM is part of the Clean Green Pakistan initiative of the government and the Prime Minister and committed to taking major initiatives to tackle the plastic waste challenge. The PepsiCo Company instals these reverse sellers. At the beginning of the year, under the Clean Green Pakistan Program of the Prime Minister, the corporation proclaimed the country's largest plastics collecting and recycling initiative. Later on, the company claimed that it wants to raise its present plastics collection and recycling objectives more than doubling its present aims by adding an additional 5,500 tonnes of plastic, collecting and recycling 10,250 tonnes of materials in 2021.

Mr Aslam said: "We all need to work together to deal very much with the plastic problem. The RVM machine is a tool to connect and encourage recycling with the public."
