PET bottle reverse vending machine inaugurated in Mumbai
consumer (used) PET bottle Reverse Vending Machine (RVM) was inaugurated recently in Mumbai. The machine is located at Sahakari Bhandar store, Prabhadevi, near Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai.
Reliance has started this initiative to keep the city and country clean, restricting the PET bottles from going into the landfill. Reliance, the owner of brand R|Elan Green Gold, is one of the largest recycler of PET bottles in India, recycling 2.2 billion PET bottles a year.
RIL has firmed up the plan to install more such machines at 12 different Reliance Retail’s Reliance SMART and Sahakari Bhandar stores in Mumbai. To encourage people to bring empty PET bottles and put it into vending machines, these machines will be equipped to dispense discount coupons when a person puts in PET bottle for shredding.
RIL will collect the shredded PET bottles and send it to its PET recycling facilities at Barabanki, UP and Hoshiarpur, Punjab, where the world’s greenest Recron Green Gold fibres are being manufactured.
