TOMRA S1 Rugged is easy to clean and operate for store personnel, containing smart sensors in the recognition module that communicate where and when to clean. As such, staff only spend time cleaning when needed, and the built-in cleaning program provides step-by-step visual guidance.
“The experience has been great. TOMRA S1 is quicker and more efficient, easy to clean and nice looking. It helps us to keep the flow and manage the demand for returns, and more people are able to redeem in a short amount of time,” said Jonathan Diaz, owner of Fine Fare, 1136 Ogden Ave., Bronx, NY.
“TOMRA S1 Rugged is our sturdiest reverse vending machine to date, a machine that is up to the challenge, in any conditions,” said Nir Samuel, VP General Manager TOMRA Metro, TOMRA Collection Solutions. “It will make satisfied recyclers keep coming back and spread the word about a smooth and easy recycling experience.”
Recyclers can already try out TOMRA S1 in the following three New York supermarkets:
• Compare Foods at 724 Hunts Point Ave. in the Bronx.
• Pioneer at 2262 Jerome Ave. in the Bronx.
• Food Town at 173-09 Jamaica Ave. in Queens.
TOMRA S1 Rugged makes the recycler’s experience efficient, easy and engaging. With TOMRA Flow Technology, the world's first 360-degree container recognition system for reverse vending applications, the machine instantly detects barcodes and security marks.
