This 'e-trash vending machine' gives you money in exchange for dumping plastic

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

With the support of the Indian and the Municipal Corporation (NDMC), a start-up company has installed an 'e-trash vending machine' in New Delhi's Connaught Place and Gate area, which showcases an interesting feature bound to attract attention.

Only plastic materials can be thrown into the smart bin and people will get money in return.

The machines have been installed at Connaught Place's eight blocks and one at Gate.

However, it will take one week to install the software in the machine and after which people can use this.

As of now, the company has not cleared that how much money one get on each plastic material.

Earlier, the NDMC gave the contract to this start-up company to install similar machines in other areas of the capital as well.

In December last year, Union Minister inaugurated two such 'smart dustbins' at Palika Bazaar, under the smart city project of NDMC in which only plastic bottles or cans can be thrown in the smart bin and people will get coupons in return.

These smart bins-cum-vending machines will recycle the bottles and cans using the latest technology.
