The first phase of using reverse vending machines (RVM) will be operational in two months in Tehran, said Hussein Jafferi, managing director of Tehran Waste Management Organization (TWMO).

RVMs are automated machines that utilize advanced technology to identify, sort, collect and process used beverage containers. “In the first phase, the machines will be installed at selected locations like the Shahrvand Chain Stores and subway stations,” ISNA quoted him as saying. The machines will accept PET and glass containers and in exchange recharge bus and subway electronic tickets as payment, Jafari said. The RMVs will be evaluated before taking a decision to use them on a large scale in the next step.
