Recycle to win small gifts

Australia - Machine Recycles Bottles for Charity

New machines in Sydney, Australia, let you deposit your empty cans and bottles in recycling receptacles, in exchange for a small gift ranging from a 10-cent donation to charity to a drawing for two free tickets to the Sydney New Year’s Eve Dawes Point viewing area.

The machine uses Surprises and gifts to nudge recycling.

Also, bottle refund deposits have been proven to be more effective than paying people to recycle because consumers loathe losing their deposit if they don’t recycle them.
