The UNO has been designed by TOMRA especially for small premises that accept approx. 1,500 containers per week.

Due to its simplistic yet innovative technological design, the UNO offers incredible functionality at an extremely low price.

Here are the benefits UNO offers:

  • Improved customer service
  • Saved time for store personnel
  • Reduced theft and miscalculations
  • A more hygienic solution
  • Increased turnover: 1% to 5% increase in test stores due to more consumer visits

Consumer studies* show that 20% of consumers returning empties in grocery stores would prefer to return at convenience stores, gas stations or kiosks if they offered a reverse vending machine. And as much as 80% of the shoppers at a gas station think it is extremely or very appropriate for the station to have a reverse vending machine!
