Sainsbury’s launches reverse vending recycling trial
Sainsbury’s has launched a trial of a reverse vending recycling scheme at its Braehead superstore in Glasgow.
The scheme will allow shoppers to return plastic bottles in exchange for money off their shopping.
Customers can deposit plastic bottles up to three litres in size in a machine at the store entrance. Aluminium drinks cans are also accepted. Customers then receive coupons worth 5p per item towards their shopping.
Up to 500 items can be deposited per visit, which means customers could save up to £25.
Judith Batchelar, director of Sainsbury’s Brand said: “We’re delighted to offer a new way to help our customers recycle while saving on their shop.”
The scheme has also launched in stores in Lincoln and Hull..
