A new bottle depot in Bowness is adapting smart technology to make recycling easier.

Bowridge Bottle Depot features a fully automated system that sorts and counts containers more efficiently and provides accurate refunds. 

That means shorter wait times and no shortchanging, says general manager Kulwant Dhillon.

“This technology sorts and counts 86 per cent of our stream that customers bring in,” he said.

“So it takes away the workload off our employees as well as provides accurate refunds to our customers in the shortest time.”

  1. Are there other sorts of businesses that you could create using this technology?
  2. Is the application of robotics like this to business a good or bad thing for workers?
