TOMRA's reverse vending solutions for the collection of cans and bottles, has installed its 500th T-90 Reverse Vending Machine (RVM) at Meijer in Cadillac, Michigan. The store now has eight T-90s, providing its customers with fast, clean and efficient container redemption. "Having the 500th installation of our T-90 RVM within a year after the initial launch of the technology in the U.S. is a great accomplishment," said Debbie Hall, SVP Sales, TOMRA of North America, Inc. "This speaks to our advanced technology and demonstrates that fast and efficient RVMs are a necessity as consumer interest in sustainability and redemption continues to increase."
Specifically developed for high volume stores, TOMRA's T-90 RVM features Flow Technology - a 360 degree instant container recognition system that's faster, cleaner and takes containers other technologies can't. All barcodes and security marks are instantly detected, so there is no need for time-consuming rotation stops and containers can be inserted in a continuous rapid flow.
The T-90 also features the company's loyalty program, TOMRA Makes Change. TOMRA Makes Change is TOMRA's interactive recycling loyalty program. Members can access their account information directly on the T-90's 10.4-inch LCD touch-screen display, at TomraMakesChange.com or through the TOMRA ReAct mobile app. Members receive one point for each container returned through participating TOMRA RVMs. Points can be redeemed for rewards or donated to various charitable organizations. 500 machines are also currently connected to the program
