Vending Machine Does The Opposite

We’d normally expect a vending machine to dish out an icy can of Coke when we drop some coins through the slot, but Envirobank’s “cash for cans” reverse vending machine does otherwise, being capable of storing up to 3,000 cans while accepting PET (#1),HDPE (#2) and PVC (#3) plastic, brown, clear and green glass and aluminum cans. You not only do your part in keeping the earth green, but depositors will also benefit from credits that can be used for discount shopping. According to Envirobank, their machines will reduce CO2 emissions, lower waste disposal and collection costs, while providing advertising and fund raising opportunities. If only this was solar-powered, now that’d be a total green package.
