Envirobank’s “cash for cans” reverse vending machines, hold up to 3000 containers and accept PET (#1),HDPE (#2) and PVC (#3) plastic, brown, clear and green glass and aluminum cans. In return, depositors get credits for discount shopping. Envirobank says their machines cut CO2 emissions, reduces waste disposal and collection costs, even provides advertising and fund raising opportunities.

Expect to see these in shopping malls, groceries and other public places very soon.
