Most vending machines that we know of prefer to swallow your cash in exchange for a can of soda or some candy, but the Reverse Vending Machine (RVM) here clearly lives up to its name – it will take in recyclable bottles and cans while handing out cash in return. Recently introduced at the Centro Hollywood shopping mall in Adelaide, South Australia, it is clearly a positive effort where promoting recycling and the reduction of littering are concerned. All you need to do is place your empty bottles or cans at the machine’s feed unit, where a built-in camera will identify individual containers and compact them if accepted. All compacted material will be sent straight to a recycling depot, and each container will net you 10 cents in the form of a receipt which can be exchanged for currency later on by scanning it into an adjacent cash machine.
