Ombori Grid is trusted by leading companies worldwide


Reverse Vending increases sustainability awareness and customer loyalty.

  • Encourage customers to recycle: by making it fun to contribute, rewarding customers, and educating them in an enjoyable way, they're more likely to deposit unwanted goods instead of putting them in landfill.
  • Meet your sustainability targets: increased use of public recycling bins and accurate measurement will enable you to prove that you are actively adopting a sustainability agenda.
  • Promote your brand: placing branded rmachines and digital signage in public spaces promotes both your sustainability program and your loyalty program.
