UK will have reward machines for plastic delivery

Through the Ministry of Environment and Climate Action, a project will be launched to encourage UK’s citizens to recycle their plastic. The project involves installing 23 collection machines in large commercial areas in mainland UK. Machines will exchange plastics for rewards.

This incentive system will reward the citizen with several offers. According to the Ministry of the Environment, the rewards will be discount coupons for stores and services, automatic participation in sweepstakes or even donations to charities.

The project will be made official on Friday with the formalization of a contract with the UK’s Association of Industrial Mineral Water and Natural Spring. For now, the specific locations where the machines will be are yet to be announced. The project was financed with 1,665 million euros by the Environmental Fund.

UK is the third country that least recycles

According to the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), each UK’s produces almost 500 kilos of garbage per year (data from 2017). This is a number lower than the European average. In contrast, only 12% of this waste is recycled.

These data make UK the third nation in the world that least recycles, behind only Israel and Turkey. Therefore, this recycling incentive project is welcome in its entirety. Perhaps in this way, UK’s citizens consider recycling their garbage (mainly plastic) more diligently.

What are your recycling habits? Are you in the habit of separating paper, plastic and glass by placing everything in the respective containers? Tell us in the comments.
