(News Bulletin 247) – Carrefour announced on Friday that it was going to launch recycling kiosks in which its customers can drop off products that are usually not recycled in exchange for vouchers.

This first in Europe, offered in collaboration with the recycling company TerraCycle, plans to focus on products that are not eligible for sorting bins.

This will include, in this case, toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes, razors and blades, writing instruments, tights and stockings, damaged toys and pots and pans.

In exchange for their deposits, customers will be able to receive a voucher for an amount ranging from 0.50 euro to 15 euros from the various project partners (Bic for pens, Dim for tights, Hasbro for toys, Philips for shavers, and Tefal for stoves).

Carrefour is currently deploying these recycling kiosks in the car parks of six stores located in France.
