Smart City: Srinagar to get reverse vending machines for managing solid plastic PET waste


SRINAGAR, JUNE 23: Srinagar is soon going to have reverse vending machines at identified public places across the city - the aim being to encourage scientific disposal of plastic and other non-biodegradable waste products and protection of the environment.
The machines also called as RVMs are being installed under the Smart City project. The Srinagar Smart City Limited or SSCL is taking care of their installation and monitoring and maintenance.
The RVMs being installed in Srinagar are the same Zeleno brand machines as have been installed in major cities across India. These smart machines solve the problem of managing solid plastic PET waste as these allow for disposing them off scientifically and thereby protecting the environment.
In addition to polyethylene terephthalate or PET bottles these machines also collect for recycling other non-biodegradable waste products like cold drink aluminium cans and miuti-layer packaging materials.
In the first phase 20 reverse vending machines will be installed within two within months. These machines will be installed at identified locations in various areas of the Srinagar city.
The users will be rewarded with cash backs and discount vouchers for disposing off the said waste material into these machines - the idea being to encourage scientific disposal of non-biodegradable waste and protection of the environment.
