Envipco, a global provider of recycling systems and reverse vending machines (RVMs), has been appointed by Iceland Foods to install Reverse Vending Machines (RVM’s) in all 87 of their stores operating in Scotland.
The machines will be delivered in 2023; this represents Envipco’s first agreement with a national retailer in the Scottish market.
Iceland Foods is a leading environmentally conscious retailer with 1,000 stores across the UK. With this agreement, Iceland becomes the first retailer to fully commit to the infrastructure required to deliver a seamless recycling experience for its customers in Scotland.
Richard Walker – managing director, Iceland Foods: “As a responsible retailer, we are eager to implement the DRS as soon as it comes into effect and to partner with the best-in-class provider. We chose Envipco as our supplier after extensive testing and trials across multiple stores. The Envipco RVM’s have proven to be very reliable, with an industry leading footprint and capacity mix. Our customers and staff find the equipment easy to use and make the recycling experience in our stores a positive one.
Simon Bolton, chief executive of Envipco: “We are excited to partner with this highly regarded retailer in the Scottish market. Envipco’s broad range of RVM platforms provides Iceland the flexibility to have the right equipment for all of their store formats and provides an important proof point in our ability to compete and win in the rest of the UK market”
