RVM Systems UK and ALS create Redemption Centres for large UK stores to recycle single-use cans and bottles

RVM Systems, a main supplier of reverse vending machines (RVMs), has partnered with ALS, a leader in UK Retail Installations, in order to create ‘Redemption Centres’, also known as car park solutions, to collect used beverage containers.

Designed to be installed in supermarket and hypermarket car parks for stores with high volumes of recyclable containers, the Redemption Centres are modular, Deposit Scheme compliant and can be adapted to fit any store with the option of being expanded if needed.  

Scotland’s Deposit Return scheme is planned to go live for the public on 1 July 2022.  England, Wales and Northern Ireland will assess a start date of a UK wide Deposit Return Scheme, following a review of the recent public consultation by DEFRA.

Gudmund Larsen, Research and Development, RVM Systems said: “Our Redemption Centres are easy to use, efficient and consumer friendly. They accept single-use beverage containers such as cans and PET plastic bottles which are collected, sorted and recycled, helping to limit waste and protect the environment for future generations.”

Martin Fletcher, Director of ALS said:  “The Redemption Centres are installed in car parks and are ideal for enterprises such as large supermarkets, local authorities and town recycling centres which need to recycle a high number of single-use beverage containers, and are able to process up to 120 containers per minute.”
