On the 12th of July 2019 RVM Systems presented an award to Morrisons East Kilbride store. Richard Brawley from RVM Systems presented the presitgious award to Lewis Wilson from Morrisons to recognise that one Reverse Vending Machine (RVM) at the store recycled over 1 million used PET plastic bottles and used drink cans since 28th July 2018 !
Reverse vending machines reward individuals for recycling by providing money or vouchers in return for empty plastic bottles. The machines accept all plastic bottles that have a barcode and Morrisons own-brand bottles (multi-packs) that may not have one.
Customers, who are invited to provide feedback, can return a maximum of 20 bottles a day and receive 50 Morrisons More points in the form of a coupon for each one brought back, which can then be spent in store.
