Fully coverage after demonstration

According to the plan of INCOM RECYCLE, the installation of the reverse vending machine will be increased gradually with the time. They took a half year to complete the market tests and optimization since the first four machine were installed in 2012. The trial operation will be launched in different regions of Beijing in a small scope and step into the large scale installation after 2014.   


By the end of June in 2016, INCOM RECYCLE have already installed more than 5000 units machine in the public places such as supermarket, hotel, restaurant, subway, school, colleges, park, government buildings, apartment and etc. They can collect more than 150K bottles every day and collect 80K bottle everyday even in winter.

This factory indeed faced the “starvation” problem which was only able to collect half material from the market comparing with their fully running capability. INCOM RECYCLE explored many solutions and finally took use of the technology of internet and Iot to redesign the reverse vending machine after combining with Chinese situation and the concept of traditional recycling machine.
