UK supermarket chain, Morrisons, has begun trialing reverse vending machines that accept any single-use plastic bottle with a barcode. Customers are able to deposit up to 20 bottles a day, and in return they are given loyalty points to spend in store.

The trial will last for 6 months at select locations.

The new scheme follows a number of recent sustainability related announcements by Morrisons, including the introduction of paper bags as a substitute when shopping for loose fruit and vegetables. Customers are also able to use their own containers for meat and fish.
