It would be so good to have this system here in Malta at least at the biggest bus stops. The island is full of plastic bottles, most people don't even collect them separately, it just goes into the trash....or on the street and into the sea :( :( :(

What a fantastic idea! I try not to use single use plastic water bottles and always recycle them because I know how few are recycled This would be a great incentive to get people to recycle these bottles and keep them out of the trash stream and the oceans.

This would be a fantastic idea for many countries!
We have a great deposit refund scheme in South Australia, 10c for glass & plastic bottles, many of the homeless collect & cash them in, so we don't have a trash problem like other countries.
