Tama nga ang sabi nila “May pera sa basura”, at dahil nasa Europa ako, linawin natin-ibig sabihin ” May Euro € sa Basura”.hahaha ♥
Here’s what I found in one gasoline station↓
Reverse Vending Machine- a device that accepts used (empty) beverage containers (plastic bottle or can )and returns money to the user.
- Big Bottle worth 0.40 EUR = 21.6790PHP
- Small Bottle worth 0.20 EUR = 10.8395PHP
- Big & Small Cans worth 0.15 EUR = 8.12961PHP
- Empty the bottles & cans & proceed to RVM.
- Put all the bottles & cans at vending machine one by one
- Wait for green ready light before put the next bottle/can
- Press the green button when you done
- Get your deposit receipt &
- Redeem your receipt at the counter or cashier
In total I got 4.45 EURO or 241.36 Philippine Peso
By collecting my own empty bottle in 5 days, I got 4.45€. Here’s what I buy with my rebate↓
Does it make sense to recycle?
Recycling is important in today’s world if we want to leave this planet for our future generations. Recycling begins at home.When you think of recycling you should really think about the whole idea; reduce, reuse and recycle. If you are not throwing away any of your old product and instead utilizing it for something new then you are actually recycling. We’ve been careless up to this point with the way we’ve treated the Earth and it’s time to change; not just the way we do things but the way we think.
Be mindful of what you do, pay attention to the items you buy and always check yourself to see if you really need it or if it comes in a package with less waste. We can all do our part and we will make a huge difference.
I just hope that we have reverse vending machine in Philippines & can find in every restaurant, school premises or any establishment like other garbage bin, so everybody can put their empty bottle directly in the machine and know exactly how much they can get from it.
(Kasi samin sa Pilipinas madalas ipun-ipon muna ng mga plastic at kahit ga bundok na ang ipon mong mga bottle hindi mo alam kung kelan dadaan ang mangangalakal,ayon bumagyo na at nadalana ng baha yong mga inipon mo at bumara ng tuluyan sa mga istribo. Iyong iba naman nahihiya pang dalhin o pumunta sa junk shop para magpakilo. Buti nalang may papageant sa barangay kung hindi , di pa magagamit yong mga plastic bottle na inipon ng nanay mo para gawing gown at pagkatapos ng ilang pageant nasasalihan ay itatapon din lang naman, hindi na pwede irecycle pang muli dahil may mga pintura at gutay-gutay na pero plastic padin naman.
Mas magiging normal at madali na sa tao ang mag recycle. Syempre ang tao nyan masipag na magdala ng empty bottle nila sa Reverse Vending Machine kasi sosyal na! at kung may magpapatapon ay mag uunahan na kasi outright may makukuha kang pera.
Ngunit, subalit dapatwat mas mainam na isawalang bahala lahat ng nabangit sa taas upang ako’y lubos na sumaya at lumakas )hahaha
The first patent for a “Bottle Return and Handling Machine” was filed in America in 1920.
The first working bottle return machine was invented and manufactured by Wicanders from Sweden used in the late 1950s.
In 1962 an advanced automatic bottle return machine was designed by Aage Tveitan and manufactured in Norway by his company Arthur Tveitan AS.
The first 3 in 1 machine was invented in 1994 by Kansmacker Mfg and is still in operation today in Detroit Mi.Source: en.wikipedia.org
