Automated return systems have the potential to drastically improve the world's recycling rate.
Automated return systems for the future
We recycle way less than we should, with America’s recycling rate falling far behind other developed countries. Automated return systems offer a solution: buy a bottle/can, use the contents, then return the bottle/can and receive money back. Find the closest system near you, and if it is not close enough, advocate to bring one to your campus.
