Smart Recycling 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.
  • Improve efficiency and reduce workload: automated notifications when bins need emptying ensure that recycling facilities are always available, while reducing unnecessary work emptying bins that don't need it.
  • Increase footfall: customers are encouraged to come into the store to recycle, which increases the likelihood that they will make purchases.
