Deposit return debuts at Musselburgh Iceland

FROZEN food specialist Iceland has stepped up activity in its commitment to reducing plastic waste with the installation of its first reverse vending machine in Scotland.

The new reverse vending machine (RVM), provided by East Kilbride based Excel Vending, will accept Iceland’s plastic drinks bottles in pack formats up to three litres and carrying an Iceland barcode. Bottles are identified using a 360° infrared scanner which matches up SKUs using recognition software before repaying customers with a 10p voucher for each recycled bottle, to be redeemed in store. Similar machines are currently used in Norway as part of the Scandinavian nation’s deposit return scheme.

Iceland is trialling reverse vending for a six-month period at four sites across the UK. The trial kicked off in May when Iceland installed one of our RVM Reverse Vending Systems at its Fulham store.

Iceland’s in-store trial of RVM coincides with Zero Waste Scotland’s ongoing investigation into design options for a deposit return scheme for drinks containers. The Scottish Government announced its intention to introduce DRS last September, with the UK Government following suit last spring. www.revend.co.uk
