Recycling Center Rewards Points on Smart Cards

Tokyo, Nov 23, 2010 (JCN) - Tomra Japan Co. Ltd, a joint subsidiary of Sumitomo Corp. and Norway's Tomra Systems ASA, started a recycling center system for the collection and recycling of PET bottles and waste paper, installed at the Food One supermarket chain's Morino store in Machida-shi, Tokyo. Food One operator Sanwa will also install Tomra's recycling center system at other outlets, most of which are located in Tokyo and Kanagawa.

The recycling center rewards the public with points commensurate with the amount of waste paper and PET bottles they bring in for collection. The points, accumulated on either a PASMO or Suica transportation smart card, or a Food One eco-point card, can be used when shopping at the Morino outlet. This recycling center is the first of its kind in Japan to collect both waste paper and PET bottles while at the same time allowing users to accumulate points on their transportation smart cards.
