With the weather in Singapore getting unbearably hot, it’s inevitable to find yourself reaching for a chilled bottled or canned drink. In a bid to encourage more consumers to recycle, the National Environment Agency (NEA) and Fraser and Neave (F&N) has unveiled smart vending machines.

For every four plastic drink bottles and aluminium drink cans deposited in these Recycle N Save machines, you can receive $0.20 in Fairprice coupons!

50 smart vending machines will be installed across Singapore by March next year – a great initiative for Singaporeans to get into the habit of recycling.

Ten of these machines has already been installed, including Our Tampines Hub, NEX Mall, Jurong Point and Waterway Point.
