Canary Wharf in London installs a special vending machine for plastic bottles, providing a ‘return deposit’
In a very first for the UK, the property company, Canary Wharf Group has installed a ‘vending machine’ giving discounts for returned plastic bottles. The bottles collected will be sent to packaging manufacturers who use recycled plastics in their product stream and are supplied back to Canary Wharf Food retailers in a circular-economy fashion. Canary Wharf Group aims to become the world’s first plastic-free commercial centre and recently concluded a ‘plastics-audit’ that resulted in the new initiative.
The ‘vending machine’ could be now found installed at an organic juice bar and coffee shop in Canada Place.
