Recycle On - demand BIN
ROBIN or Recycle On - demand BIN is a reverse vendo system that accepts recyclables such as PET bottles and tin cans in exchange with rewards. Since discipline is lacking among people, we offer motivation through rewards for them to be environmentally responsible.
The bin's reward system is customizable such as typical coins or access to charging system or WiFi or more exciting points that can be converted to products from our partner retailers. Our partners may vary from fast food chains, convenient stores, malls, grocery shops, resorts and others who would like recycling to be part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Imagine, exchanging a couple of PET Bottles for a cheese burger meal or a 1 - day pass in a resort.
