In more than 100 cities throughout Spain and it will progressively be implemented throughout the country to be able to recycle in any municipality, promoting recycling in all parts of the territory. Locate your nearest RECYCLING container through the application!

📍RECYCLES recycling machines in the main cities: Barcelona, ​​Madrid, Tarragona, Las Palmas and Valencia. You can also participate in RECYCLES through the yellow containers in Castellón, Seville, Tenerife, Pontevedra, Santiago, Palencia, Vigo, Segovia, Lugo, La Rioja, Alicante or Salamanca.

In addition, we have incorporated recycling machines during 2022 in Malaga, Zaragoza, Bilbao, Badalona, ​​Logroño, Toledo or Burgos and new municipalities have already been launched in 2023, such as: Pozuelo de Alarcón, Ibiza, León, Basauri or Orense.

Each city offers several recycling alternatives for recycling plastic beverage cans and bottles:

🟡 Yellow container, which will validate packaging through QR codes.
🟡 Yellow container with smart ring, which you can access with the NFC technology of your mobile to recycle your packaging.
🟡 RECYCLE machines, similar to vending machines but with reverse mechanics, where you can deposit your cans and bottles.

The figures for recycling domestic packaging in the yellow container improve every year, but at Ecoembes we continue to innovate to find new formulas that benefit the environment.

This is how the Return and Reward System (SDR) was born, which encourages the recycling of plastic beverage cans and bottles and recognizes your commitment to the environment. This digital evolution of the recycling habit takes care of environmental sustainability.

RECICLOS is an initiative of the Ecoembes TheCircularLab innovation center, which investigates new recycling alternatives to mobilize citizens in terms of recycling. Ecoembes has modernized existing infrastructures, incorporating mobile technology to adapt them to new digital habits.

The goal is to recycle more and better, making the recycling habit digital and encouraging them through social and ecological rewards.

I don't think it really works. I've installed the app and scanned the codes which are on the plastic bottles BUT there isn't any QR code on the container in my quarter's not so useful actually. I'm very sorry. Spain has much to learn from the countries like Germany or Sweden because they are a great example how to recycle the plastic or glass or aluminium.

This is a really good idea, however, it is only valid for bottles and cans. There are so many things that need to be included like tetrabricks and other plastic wrappings. Also, duplicates are not permitted, so if I have some friends over and we all drink a beer from a can, ONLY One of those cans will be counted.

Hola Smartie. Sí, puedes reciclar varios envases del mismo tipo. La inteligencia de nuestro software considera un duplicado fotos iguales (y otros parámetros que no podemos detallarte). Sobre los tipos de envases, de momento aceptamos latas y botellas pero pronto esperamos incluir más tipos de envases ligeros.

ECOEMBES please, just set up machines to collect and pay out directly. Why complicate things with an app, rules and more rules! What if you dont have a cell phone or you are not able to understand/use technology? Who has time to scan and do all the work you ask before dumping used packages? ECOEMBES is made up of companies that produce containers which pollute the environment, it is not altruistic. That is why their recycling actions are limited to certain packages.
