Warsaw has become the first city in the world to install smart recycling machines that incentivize the public to treat their waste responsibly. Developed by the Kraków-based firm EcoTech System, users can dispatch their aluminum, glass and plastic trash inside the contraptions before receiving points in return via a mobile app.
In turn, these points can later be redeemed in the form of cinema tickets or shopping discounts. As things stand, machines can be found on Pl. Zbawiciela and Pl. Bankowy, with plans already in place to increase the total number to ten by the end of the summer.
