A new Reverse Vending Machine is now available at Paddington Recreation
Following one of the Climate Assembly’s recommendations, we have introduced in Paddington Recreation Ground a new Reverse Vending Machine with the aim to incentivise recycling e.g. bottle deposits and a points-based rewards scheme with vouchers and discounts.
The Reverse Vending Machine was the winning idea from Westminster City Council Innovation Challenge hosted at the end of 2021.
How it works
Users can deposit single-use plastic bottles and aluminium drinks cans into the machine, and for every item deposited, 10p will be donated to the North Paddington Youth Club with 188 items (159 bottles and 29 cans) already deposited, making a helpful start to raise funds.
So, come along to Paddington Recreation Ground and check it out.
