Recycling technology and equipment company Container Deposit Systems has been busy installing its machines as container recycling takes hold across the country.
The company manufactures intelligent machines that use vision systems to identify, sort and count containers eligible under state container deposit systems in a high speed and accurate manner.
Suitable for self-service use by the public or for installation in waste processing facilities, the machines gather data and print a barcode receipt for all transactions.
The Adelaide company took to social media to celebrate its latest installation at the Express Recycling Burpengary plant in Queensland (pictured).
CDS said: “Nothing makes us happier knowing our innovative recycling technology is able to help sites create an easy, customer-friendly recycling facility so everyone can be encourage to keep the environment clean, as well as score a bit of extra cash in their pocket.”
Container deposit systems have been in place in South Australia since 1977 but have more recently spread to other states.
In Queensland consumers can receive a refund for most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and 3L.
Victoria will introduce container recycling by 2023.
