Taking cognizance from New Delhi Municipal Council, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) has envisaged installing ‘reverse vending machines’ at nine locations on prominent markets and gathering spots.

Serving the purpose of collecting garbage like cans, bottles, tetra packs, etc, these automated recycling machines provide gifts in return to prevent littering.

A senior corporation official said, “The reverse vending machine, called ‘zeleno’, is already holding operations at nine places in Jharkhand, five locations in Lucknow, and in Defence Colony market under SDMC, where a three-month pilot project is being functional.”

“An idea sponsored by reverse vending machines is to give people something in return for disposing waste. Anyone can discard waste like plastic bottles, glass bottles and papers and will fetch reward for coupons. These machines function automatically and end the need of mechanical segregation,” an official said.
