Saint George’s Church of England School have received a free Reverse Vending Machine from ACM Environmental Champions.
ACM are different to standard waste disposal firms as they promote and work towards improving recycling with their clients and ensuring the best possible green outcomes. One of the products they offer is a reverse vending machine. The machine will scan the barcode of a bottle/can to check it accepts it and weigh to make sure it is empty. It then takes the bottle/can and crushes it so that they can be recycled/reused and in return, offers a voucher as an incentive.
Saint George’s are working on a few incentives for students such as; giving students money back for recycling their bottles/cans or giving them Ethos points in exchange for prizes.
