ROME OFFERS CREDIT ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN RETURN FOR PLASTIC

ROME OFFERS CREDIT ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN RETURN FOR PLASTIC

People in Rome can now earn five cents towards public transportation tickets, for every plastic bottle they recycle at special machines around metro stations.

 

The city of Rome has unveiled three test machines and the transaction works via a scan on users’ phones.

 

It seems people are universally optimistic about the scheme’s success. However, residents believe that just three machines won’t be enough to cater for demand.
