We are involved in container deposit schemes in Europe, North America and Australia, collecting and recycling more than 40 billion beverage containers a year. Our cloud-connected and digitally-enabled RVMs allow consumers to collect refunds on their bottles and containers via electronic payments, discounts and vouchers - or to donate to charities of their choice.

We are currently operating in New South Wales, Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia.
