Bottles & Drink Cans Now Valuable, Thanks To Lidl.

Thurles.Info published, on October 12th last, details of how Lidl, the German International discount retail chain, intended to introduce reverse vending machines into their Thurles, Co. Tipperary retail outlet.
We are now happy to announce that the announcement has become a reality.

Two reverse vending machines currently being installed in Lidl, situated on Slievenamon Road, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

We can now confirm that two reverse vending machines have been installed and are expected to be up and running shortly.

Customers will soon be able to deposit their empty plastic bottles and drink cans and in return receive voucher credits to spend in-store, with each bottle or can deposited, earning its owner, between 10 and 15 cent per item deposited.

Great to see that the wheel has once again, comes full circle, with the situation returning to what it was in the 1960s; which saw empties returned for cash deposits, helping to keep tidy our town and country roadside landscapes.
