Recycling made fast and easy
One of the notable benefits of the TOMRA R1 system is its ability to handle the increase in returns without any delays. Customers at KIWI XL Ligosenteret have reported zero queues since the installation of the TOMRA R1, meaning the entire recycling process has become much faster.
The TOMRA R1 has received praise from KIWI XL Ligosenteret's customers. Customers appreciate the ease with which they can pour their containers into the machine, close the lid, and witness the automated counting process that swiftly provides them with a deposit return receipt. One satisfied customer enthusiastically shared, "I believe this machine is fantastic. Very quick. Very easy."
Enhanced efficiency with Air Solution and Notify+Assist
The implementation of the TOMRA R1 has improved operational efficiency at KIWI XL Ligosenteret. Previously, as store employee Line-Therese Bjerkeset explains, “we had to run back and forth to the machine all the time” to check its status or handle any issues that may arise. However, thanks to the integration of Notify+Assist, this is no longer necessary.
With the Notify+Assist app, store personnel receive notifications when the reverse vending machine needs attention (such as the need to empty storage bins), providing real-time updates and control. This efficient communication channel minimizes downtime, maximizes productivity, and streamlines the overall management of the reverse vending process.
The time-saving benefits are further enhanced by Air Solution. Traditionally, in stores with reverse vending machines, staff members manually unload bags of collected containers from the storage cabinets. However, the combination of Air Solution with the TOMRA R1 system has revolutionized this process, making it fully automated.
With Air Solution, bottles and cans are transported through a pipe directly to a large storge container located outside the back or side of the store. This automated procedure eliminates the need for manual handling, significantly reducing the time and effort required to manage the recycling process. As Leif shares, "Our employees can work on other matters instead of running to the machine."
