Recycle for Rewards

In countries with mandatory recycling laws or container deposit legislation, Reverse Vending machines are used to advocate & promote recycling. A reverse vending machine is a device that accepts used (empty) beverage containers and returns an incentive to the user.

Recycle for Rewards aims to introduce and pilot the Reverse Vending Machine in the Maldives to demonstrate the machine and to showcase how the machine can be used to reduce plastic while also contributing to a business. In addition to the introduction of the RVM, a national campaign will be led on the importance of waste management and how similar initiatives can be replicated in the Maldives.
