How to choose a barcode scanner for recycling vending machines?

What is a recycling vending machine?

Recycling vending machines, or commonly known as reverse vending machines (RVMs). They are machines where people can return empty beverage containers (such as bottles and cans) for recycling. In countries and regions where there are container deposit laws, the machine will usually return the deposit or refund amount to the user. It identifies the type of packaging by scanning the barcode, material or shape of the container using sensors such as photoelectric sensors, infrared spectrometers and barcode readers in order to spit out the correct deposit refund. Typically, the machine will classify the containers into different types such as plastic, aluminium cans, glass bottles, etc. Recyclable and non-recyclable containers are stored in different bins for later recycling or processing.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is a campaign to reduce the amount of waste produced.

The RVM machine uses barcode scanning as a sorting system to determine whether plastic bottles or cans can be recycled or not. With the help of barcode scanning, the containers are classified as cans or plastic bottles and compared with the database,and return the correct amount of deposit to the user.
