Our "CCVM": Reverse vending machine for coffee-to-go cups

Why implement a deposit system for coffee-to-go cups?

In Germany alone, almost 3 billion disposable coffee cups are thrown away every year. The average time a cup is used before it is thrown away after purchase is only 15 minutes. The production of these disposable cups requires a large amount of resources:

  • about 65 tons of wood
  • 1.5 billion litres of water
  • 11.000 tons of plastic
  • and an amount of energy which could be use to supply a small town for a hole year

Our solution

We have developed a reverse vending machine for the return of disposable cups in order to recycle them as well as the collection of returnable cups for multiple use. The innovative CCVM reverse vending machine has been specifically developed to take back all types of coffee cups. The machine optionally allows to return and separate disposable and reusable cups, so you can implement a system for multi-way cups step-by-step. The deposit value can be given out in different ways. In addition, the machine stands on wheels and can therefore also be used as a mobile solution. With a battery life of up to 14 hours, it can be used during the day without external power as an additional advertising space outside your shop.

Set a good example in terms of sustainability and environmental protection by using our reverse vending machine CCVM!
