How would you like to deposit your waste AND get a reward for doing so? Double win, right?
Yes, you heard that right. A start-up company with the support of the Indian government and the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), has installed an ‘e-trash money vending machine’ in New Delhi’s Connaught Place (cp) and India Gate area.
NDMC has also given a contract to the same start-up company to install similar machines in other areas of the national capital as well. Name of startup company is RVM RECYCLE PRIVATE LIMITED. You can get more detail of company by clicking here. Director’s of this company are Prateek Mittal, Rishabh Agarwal, Nimish Gupta.
Now the question arises that how will you receive the money? Well, After putting the empty bottle of water in the machine, you will put your finger on the fingerprint scanner. The machine accepts only plastic bottle with barcode and cans. After putting the trash you can either opt for donation ie donating our money or you can get coupons. Not only this, The company will also provide movie tickets and other exciting things. For detail working of machine watch this video below.
The machines have been installed at Connaught Place’s eight blocks and one at India Gate. However, the machine is not functional right now. It will take one week to install the software in the machine and after that people can use this to clean the city and earn some bucks.
(UPDATE) Here are some of the images of the machine.
