A reverse vending machine designed to accept plastic bottles and aluminium cans has been unveiled King’s Cross in central London by Veolia and restaurant chain LEON, following research that suggests 81% of people would “go out their way” to deposit a bottle or can.

The pilot will operate for six months to encourage people to recycle while on the go. Any bottle returned will receive a voucher worth 10% off the bill at the nearest LEON restaurant.
