popularity of drink container recycling in Germany, with a 98% return rate,
makes it the world’s highest-performing deposit return system. Its unique
system covers a variety of eligible containers, includng refillable containers.
To ensure Edeka Böge provides an expansive, practical, and efficient recycling
solution to its customers, it has invested in TOMRA's innovative solutions. The
store has two TOMRA T9 machines accepting bottle crates, glass bottles and
refillable containers – and one T90 reverse vending machine taking center stage, accepting and storing PET bottles and
cans. These machines are integral to the seamless performance of the store,
says Jasper Steffens, Assistant
to Management at Edeka Böge.
to Steffens, the TOMRA T90 plays a fundamental role in improving the pressure
on the T9 machines. This strategic
distributionensures a smooth customer flow,
allowing for the efficient return of both single-use and refillable bottles.
Weise, a customer at the store, attests to the practicality and speed of
TOMRA's reverse vending machines. Handing in empty containers becomes a breeze,
whether it's leaving bottle crates or efficiently returning single-use bottles.
Edeka Böge also offers more efficient operations for its store personnel, with both the TOMRA T9 and T90 catering to high-volume container returns. Jasper Steffens highlights how the TOMRA T90 has provided massive labor savings in the store. With its built-in compactors for cans and bottles, and large bins offering storage, it requires less emptying and cleaning compared to manual handling of drink container returns.
