Idea #2- The Recycle Buyer Machine


A machine like a vending machine, that takes in plastic bottles and gives something in return.

The backstory- 

This too happened when I was in Pune. Like 1.5-2 years back. Someone talked about an automated machine that recycles bottles in London or somewhere. I wanted to do it in India, our way.

The Idea- 

Imagine a machine that takes in plastic bottles.

The machine validates the plastic bottle, places it, crushes it, and stores it inside. And in exchange there is a card that can be loaded with points (like the payback points).

And if we place it outside Dominos, Pizza Hut, Subway etc, the machine will also be taken care of and the points too can also be used in these outlets, the next time the person visits.

Of course there has to be a backend process to all this, someone to collect the plastic by the end of the day or whenever it gets full. And make sure all that plastic is taken care of properly.
