BCRS Malta, the license operator of Malta’s Beverage Container Refund Scheme, has signed an agreement with Envipco for the supply, installation, and servicing of around 300 reverse vending machines (RVM) around Malta and Gozo.

The installation of the machines will be instrumental in the operation of the Beverage Container Refund Scheme and the collection of empty single-use beverage containers. The scheme is set to commence in April 2022.

“Having led this initiative over the last three-and-a-half years, it now gives me great pride to make such a significant step towards delivering a very tangible environmental initiative for our country that will have a lasting impact for generations to come,” BCRS Malta Chairperson Pierre Fava said.

“Key to this award is Envipco’s understanding of our program needs along with their extensive experience of global Deposit Refund Schemes (DRS),” he continued.

The RVMs set to be deployed all over Malta and Gozo will be receiving empty single-use beverage containers from consumers and returning a deposit refund.

Powered by the latest Internet of Things technology, RVMs comprise the high-tech front-end of the Beverage Container Refund Scheme that aims to collect and recycle 85% of all single-use beverage containers placed on the market by 2026.

“We are privileged to have the opportunity to support BCRS as the implement a deposit scheme in Malta,” Envipco CEO Simon Bolton said.

“It shows the strength of our technology platform and our focus on partnering with customers to offer an excellent solution. With an exceptional local partner in Joseph Cachia & Son Ltd, we look forward to delivering this system and supporting Malta as they make another important step to a circular economy,” he concluded.
